"Of all things, love is the most potent."
"Joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul"
"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."
"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"
"Play is the work of the child."
"We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry."
"There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it..."
"It takes a village..."
