On the occasion of Children’s Day, we bring you some quotes by the man himself and other leaders and influencers on the importance of nurturing children with love and care.
Jawaharlal Nehru: Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation and the citizens of tomorrow. Only through right education can a better order of society be built up.
Rabindranath Tagore: Children are living beings – more living than grown-up people who have built shells of habit around themselves. Therefore it is absolutely necessary for their mental health and development that they should not have mere schools for their lessons, but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love.
Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.
Narendra Modi: 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.
Dr APJ Abdul Kalam: Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.
Swami Vivekanand: Every child is a born optimist; he dreams golden dreams. In youth he becomes still more optimistic. It is hard for a young man to believe that there is such a thing as death, such a thing as defeat or degradation. Old age comes, and life is a mass of ruins. Dreams have vanished into the air, and the man becomes a pessimist.
Dr Haim Ginott: Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.
Stacia Tauscher: We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
