Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 28 November 2021

This explosion [of language] occurs all at once. Psychologists have counted one to three hundred new words in a week. The child becomes richer from one moment to the next, having passed that miserable point when he had such difficulty making himself understood. That difficult point was the eve of his triumph.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 73
