 "To interest the children in the universe, we must not begin by giving them elementary facts about it, to make them merely understand its mechanism, but start with far loftier notions of a philosophical nature, put in an acceptable manner, suited to the child's psychology."

--Maria Montessori, "The Universe Presented to the Child's Imagination," chapter four in To Educate the Human Potential (1948)
