Montessori Quote of the Day

Montessori Quote

The newborn child is impotent, without the power of movement, without intelligence. He must create all this in the mystery of his life; something must happen. We cannot see into this mystery. We can only see the external results – as when the child talks, runs, plays, does things which he could not do before.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 92
