“She [the Montessori teacher] must acquire a moral alertness which has not hitherto been demanded by any other system, and this is revealed in her tranquility, patience, charity, and humility. Not words, but virtues, are her main qualifications.” —The Discovery of the Child
“The teacher has two tasks: to lead the children to concentration and to help them in their development afterwards.” —The Child, Society and the World (Unpublished Speeches and Writing)
