You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities, great potential strength and ability. Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers.
As a child of God, I am greater than anything that can happen to me
You have to be unique yourself.
We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us
Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success
To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal
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.
The Dream is not what you see in sleep dream is which does not let you sleep.
Dream,Dream,Dream Dream transforms in to thoughts.And thoughts result in action.
You cannot change your future.But you can change your habits.and surely your habits will change your future.
For great men, religion is a way of making friends; small people make religion a fighting tool
It Is Very Easy To Defeat Someone, But It Is Very Hard To Win Someone
Don’t take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck.
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.
If we are not free, no one will respect us.
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.
Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person.
Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.
No religion has mandated killing others as a requirement for its sustenance or promotion.
I was willing to accept what I couldn’t change.
In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength.
The youth need to be enabled to become job generators from job seekers.
Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension
A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle
LIFE and TIME are the world’s best teachers. LIFE teaches us to make good use of TIME and TIME teaches us the value of LIFE.
Learning gives creativity
Creativity leads to thinking
Thinking provides knowledge
Knowledge makes you great.
All Birds find shelter during a rain.
But Eagle avoids rain by flying above
Problems are common, but attitude
makes the difference!!!
Watch the below Video to see the Quotes of Abdul Kalam.
Find below one of his Poems “Indomitable Spirit”
I was swimming in the sea,
Waves came one after the other
I was swimming and swimming to reach my destination.
But one wave, a powerful wave, overpowered me;
It took me along in its own direction,
I was pulled long and along.
When I was about to lose amidst the sea wave power,
One thought flashed to me, yes, that is courage
Courage to reach my goal, courage to defeat the powerful force and succeed;
With courage in my mind, indomitable spirit engulfed me,
With indomitable spirit in mind and action,
I regained lost confidence
I can win, win and win
Strength came back to me, overpowered the sea wave
I reached the destination, my mission.
Find below Kalam’s another poem “Vision”
I climbed and climbed
Where is the peak, my Lord?
I ploughed and ploughed,
Where is the knowledge treasure, my Lord?
I sailed and sailed,
Where is the island of peace, my Lord?
Almighty, bless my nation
With vision and sweat resulting into happiness
