Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 23 July 2020

The child’s conquest of independence begins with his first introduction to life. While he is developing, he perfects himself and overcomes every obstacle that he finds in his path. A vital force is active within him, and this guides his efforts towards their goal. It is a force called the ‘horme’.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 83
