Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 14 October 2021

The child is a worker and a diligent observer. He looks straight at things; he stares at them for a long time; he is interested in learning all he can about his environment. Perhaps he is staring at a flower, absorbing its image. This work gives him happiness and peace because, in doing so, he is following his natural urges.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 56
