Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 5 August 2020

The muscles should always serve the intellect and thus preserve their functional unity with the human personality. If [an adult] is an intelligent creature and muscularly active, then his rest lies in intelligent activity, just as the rest of every being lies in the normal exercise of its proper functions. We must therefore provide a child in his environment with means for exercising his activities.

Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, p. 83
