When a child is given a little leeway, he will at once shout, “I want to do it!” But in our schools, which have an environment adapted to children’s needs, they say, “Help me to do it alone.”And these words reveal their inner needs.

- Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood,   translated by M. Joseph Costelloe, S.J.
