Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 5 October 2021

This is our responsibility, not to spoil the great laws of nature and the effort which is in each child. The teacher must be the servant of nature. The highest thing she can do is to serve. The best she can do is to be a perfect servant, to show respect and care, and be humble. Her plan must be to nurture life, which is a force, a force full of wisdom and power.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 52
