Education is not what the teacher gives, but it is a natural process that takes place spontaneously in the human individual; it is not acquired by listening to words, but by virtue of the practices realized in the environment. The task of the teacher is not to talk, but to prepare and arrange a series of motives of cultural activity in specially arranged surroundings. - Maria Montessori
