|"We must take man himself, take him with patience
and confidence, across all planes of education. We must
put everything before him, the school, culture, religion,
the world itself. We must help him to develop within
himself that which will make him capable of understanding.
It is not merely words, it is a labour of education.
This will be a preparation for peace, for peace cannot
exist without justice and without men endowed with a
strong personality and a strong conscience."
-- Maria Montessori, Lecture, Edinburgh, 1939
