„It seems as though a new epoch were in preparation, a truly human epoch“

—  Maria Montessori Italian pedagogue, philosopher and physician 1870 - 1952
Context: It seems as though a new epoch were in preparation, a truly human epoch, and as though the end had almost come of those evolutionary periods which sum up the history of the heroic struggles of humanity; an epoch in which an assured peace will promote the brotherhood of man, while morality and love will take their place as the highest form of human superiority. In such an epoch there will really be superior human beings, there will really be men strong in morality and in sentiment. Perhaps in this way the reign of woman in approaching, when the enigma of her anthropological superiority will be deciphered. Woman was always the custodian of human sentiment, morality and honour, and in these respects man always has yielded women the palm. Antropologia Pedagogica (1910), translated as Pedagogical Anthropology (1913), p. 259.
