The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist’.

Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.

This is an essential principle: teaching details bring confusion. Establishing relationships between things, brings knowledge.

Often, between children and parents, roles are inverted. Children are compassionate towards their parents and accommodate them, so as to give them joy.

Maria Montessori, born August 31, 1870, Sun in Virgo, Moon in Scorpio, Ascendant in Leo, Italian educator.


Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

The greatest happiness you can have is knowing that you do not necessarily require happiness.

It takes a lot of rehearsing for a man to be himself.

William Saroyan, born 31 August 1908, Sun in Virgo, Moon in Scorpio, Ascendant in Taurus, American novelist (– 18 May 1981)
