Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 13 January 2020

And thus the new-born child is not only a body ready to function as a body, but a spiritual embryo with latent psychic capacities. It would be absurd to think that man alone, characterised and distinct from all other creatures by the grandeur of his mental life, should be the only one with no pattern of psychic development.

Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood, p. 16
