What are the TOP 10 quotes by Maria Montessori?

We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.

The first idea the child must acquire is that of the difference between good and evil.

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 cannot create observers by saying 'observe,' but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses.

Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.

To aid life, leaving it free, however, that is the basic task of the educator.

Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.

If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.

What is a scientist? We give the name scientist to the type of man who has felt experiment to be a means guiding him to search out the deep truth of life, to lift a veil from its fascinating secrets, and who, in this pursuit, has felt arising within him a love for the mysteries of nature, so passionate as to annihilate the thought of himself.

Discipline must come through liberty. We do not consider an individual disciplined only when he has been rendered as artificially silent as a mute and as immovable as a paralytic. He is an individual annihilated, not disciplined.
