Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 16 February 2020

It is plain that nature exercises a powerful supervision over this awakening, this fulfilment. The aim of the mother's care is higher than purely physiological. Through her affection and her tender care, she awaits the birth of the latent instincts. And for men we might say by analogy that, through delicate care of the new-born babe, we should await the spiritual advent of man.

Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood, p. 24
