Quote of the Moment

May 27, 2011

 

The stars, Earth, stones, life of all kinds, form a whole in relation to each other and so close is this relationship that we cannot understand a stone without some understanding of the great sun. No matter what we touch, an atom or a cell, we cannot explain it without knowledge of the Universe. The laws governing the universe can be made interesting and wonderful to children, more interesting than things in themselves, and they begin to ask:

What am I?

What is the task of humanity in this wonderful universe?

-Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential
