Children's day is celebrated as a sign of appreciation to children for being who they are. Recollecting the memories of our leaders and statesmen, here are some heart warming children's day quotes:
Grown-ups have a strange way of putting themselves in compartments and groups. They build barriers... of religion, caste, colour, party, nation, province, language, customs and of rich and poor. Fortunately, children do not know much about these barriers, which separate. They play and work with each other and it is only when they grow up that they begin to learn about these barriers from their elders.
--- Former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru
If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won't have to struggle; we won't have to pass fruitless idle resolutions, but we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which consciously or unconsciously the whole world is hungering.
--- Mahatma Gandhi
If there is education, there will be everything in life. Government can make roads, hospitals and also construct school buildings. But your homes can brighten up only if your children are educated. I am confident that if we focus on education, our society will certainly develop.
--- Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.
--- Former President APJ Abdul Kalam
There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children.
--- Former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.
--- Writer Rabindranath Tagore
