Letter "M" » Maria Montessori Quotes
«Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.»
«Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world»
«If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.»
«Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.»
«One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.»
«The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil.»
«We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.»
«The task of the educator lies in seeing that the child does not confound good with immobility and evil with activity.»
«We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.»
«Discipline must come through liberty. . . . We do not consider an individual disciplined only when he has been rendered as artificially silent as a mute and as immovable as a paralytic. He is an individual annihilated, not disciplined.»
