Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 26 October 2020

The little child’s first movements were instinctive. Now, he acts consciously and voluntarily, and with this comes an awakening of his spirit…. Conscious will is a power which develops with use and activity. We must aim at cultivating the will…. Its development is a slow process that evolves through a continuous activity in relationship with the environment.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 231
