On the 27th day of July 2015, the world endured the loss of a visionary, a scientist and one of the purest of people on this earth. His name Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. May he rest in peace. Not only did he empower India to become a nuclear savvy nation, he also served as President from 2002 to 2007. Some of the most prominent missiles with India’s armed forces, still, were developed under his supervision. But you can read all about his work on his wikipedia page.
This post is dedicated to the change and motivation that Dr. Kalam inspired with his words.
“Let me define a leader. He must have vision and passion and not be afraid of any problem. Instead, he should know how to defeat it. Most importantly, he must work with integrity.”
“You have to dream before your dreams come true.”
“Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.”
“To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.”
“You see, God helps only those who work hard. That principle is very clear.”
“My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.”
“Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.”
“Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.”
“If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.”
“Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.”
