Maria Montessori

Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.
Leo Tolstoy

Education is the transmission of civilization.
Will Durant

Education must, be not only a transmission of culture but also a provider of alternative views of the world and a strengthener of the will to explore them.
