Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 22 July 2021

The child’s mind is completely different from ours: his mind possesses the magnificent and almost miraculous faculty of taking from the environment external ideas and impressions, incarnating these into his being. An obvious example is the language that the small human being, in spite of being mute at the inception of life, absorbs from the environment. And the adult finds himself, almost as though it were by heredity, with a language complete and fully formed.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 76
