Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 19 December 2021

Every creature has a task; a task not just for its own benefit, but for the benefit of the environment as well. Each species’ adaptation to the environment shows us what the purpose and useful work of each is, the work which each contributes towards universal harmony. Because each animal is adapted to the environment, the environment is kept beautiful.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 93
