Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 2 March 2020

If we are to walk, we must have ground to walk on; after we have learnt to walk, we may learn to jump, dance, etc., but we will still need the ground. Walking is a relation between the individual and the environment. Adaptation must come first. Only after this first adaptation has been made can there be the possibility of flexibility and a variety of creative responses.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 129
