"The mind grows by self revelation. In play the child ascertains what he can do, discovers his possibilities of will and thought by exerting his power spontaneously. In work he follows a task prescribed for him by another, and does not reveal his own proclivities and inclinations -- but another's. In play he reveals his own original power."
~ Friedrich Froebel, from the Education of Man
