#QotD: "The things the child sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear."


"The child has a different relation to his environment from ours. Adults admire their environment. They can remember it and think about it, but the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear."
~ Maria Montessori, from her book The Absorbent Mind.
