MONTESSORI QUOTES

The Diversity of Challenges
. . . the adolescent should have a life of activity and variety, and . . .  one occupation should act as a “holiday” from another occupation (From Childhood to Adolescence, 70)
Getting Out of the Head
Education should . . . include the two forms of work, manual and intellectual, for the same person, and thus make it understood by practical experience that these two kinds complete each other and are equally essential to a civilized existence. (From Childhood to Adolescence, 65)
More than Acquisition of Knowledge
Let us develop admiration and understanding for work and for the life of man to this end. . . . We help him intellectually, by means of study, to fathom man’s work in society in order to develop in him the human understanding and solidarity which are so sorely needed today.
When ethics bring to future generations a feeling of attachment, not only to the homeland but to all humanity, the basis of love and peace will have been built. (From Childhood to Adolescence, 96-97)
