We must therefore turn to the child as to the key to the fate of our future life … to learn from him the practical secret of our own life. From this point of view the figure of the child presents itself as powerful and mysterious, an object of meditation, for the child who holds in himself the secret of our nature becomes our master.
— Dr. Maria Montessori (Secret of Childhood, 227)
