Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 13 December 2020

The child, in fact, once he feels sure of himself, will no longer seek the approval of authority after every step. He will go on piling up finished work of which the others know nothing, obeying merely the need to produce and perfect the fruits of his industry. What interests him is finishing his work, not to have it admired, nor to treasure it up as his own property.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 250
