The child reveals the deepest world riddles in a wonderful way

Anthroposophical spiritual science does not regard education as a science, nor as theoretical knowledge, but as a true art, as an art dealing with the most noble material we have in the world, with the human being himself, with the child that in such a miraculous way reveals to us the deepest world riddles, who year after year, one would even like to say, from week to week, illustrates how the spiritual, the soul, still deeply hidden as a divine gift from the spirit world, becomes visible in its physiognomy, through its gestures, through everything with which it expresses life.
