"Respect for the child is the cornerstone on which all other Montessori principles rest."
"Of all things love is the most potent."
"Peace is what every human being is craving for, and it can be brought about by humanity through the child."
"The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist."
"We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry."
"Follow the child, they will show you what they need to do, what they need to develop in themselves and what area they need to be challenged in. “The aim of the children who persevere in their work with an object is certainly not to “learn”; they are drawn"
