Montessori Quote

What...puts the child in the position of a real worker is that he does not fulfil the pattern of the man-to-be-made only through meditation and rest. No, his work is made up of activity, he creates by continual exercise. And we must clearly understand that he too uses; his outer environment for his work, the same environment that the adult uses and transforms.

Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood, p. 201
