A.P.J ABDUL KALAM QUOTES



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.


God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities, great potential strength and ability. Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers.


You have to dream before your dreams can come true.


Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.


Climbing to the top demands strength, whether it is to the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career.


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.



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.


If we are not free, no one will respect us.


As a child of God, I am greater than anything that can happen to me.


Tell me, why is the media here so negative? Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognise our own strengths, our achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing success stories but we refuse to acknowledge them. Why?


Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.


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.


Those who cannot work with their hearts achieve but a hollow, half-hearted success that breeds bitterness all around.


Do we not realize that self respect comes with self reliance?


We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.

In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.

English is necessary as at present original works of science are in English. I believe that in two decades times original works of science will start coming out in our languages. Then we can move over like the Japanese.

I was willing to accept what I couldn't change.

No religion has mandated killing others as a requirement for its sustenance or promotion.

Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign things? Is it a legacy of our colonial years? We want foreign television sets. We want foreign shirts. We want foreign technology. Why this obsession with everything imported?

Unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength.

The youth need to be enabled to become job generators from job seekers.

We must think and act like a nation of a billion people and not like that of a million people. Dream, dream, dream!
