An Education of the Senses

"We cannot create observers by saying "observe", but by giving them the power and means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses."
--Maria Montessori (1870-1952)
"The most effective kind of education is that the child should play amongst lovely things."
--Plat0 (428BC-348BC)

"Children have to be educated, but they also must be left to educate themselves."
--Earnest Dimnet
