Montessori Quote

The child is the builder of man. In the first year of life the child does not have the body or intelligence or character of a man. A man is a member of a group with the characteristics of that group. As these characteristics are not inborn, they must be acquired by the child through contact with the environment, through repeated experiences and through activity.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 109
