“The more the capacity to concentrate is developed, the more often the profound tranquility in work is achieved, then the clearer will be the manifestation of discipline within the child.”
Maria Montessori
“The more the capacity to concentrate is developed, the more often the profound tranquility in work is achieved, then the clearer will be the manifestation of discipline within the child.”
Maria Montessori
“If a child’s cycle of activity is interrupted, the results are a deviation of behavior, aimlessness, and loss of interest… So whatever intelligent activity we witness in a child – even if it seems absurd to us…we must not interfere; for the child must be able to finish the cycle of activity on which his heart is set.
Maria Montessori
“Now, child life is not an abstraction; it is the life of individual children. There exists only one real manifestation: the living individual; and toward single individuals, one by one observed, education must direct itself.”
Maria Montessori
“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.”
Maria Montessori
“Bring the child to the consciousness of his own dignity, and he will feel free. We see no limit to what should be offered to the child, for his will be an immense field of chosen activity.”
Maria Montessori
“We must support as much as possible the child’s desires for activity; not wait on him, but educate him to be independent. ”
Maria Montessori
“It is well to cultivate a friendly feeling towards error, to treat it as a companion inseparable from our lives, as something having a purpose which it truly has.”
