Dr APJ Abdul Kalam was the eleventh president of India, and was awarded the country’s highest civilian honour, Bharat Ratna in the year 1997.
As a leader whose life inspired and will continue to inspire millions of Indians, we present below some of his inspiring quotes:
#1 When the problem arises — become the captain of the problem and defeat it
#2 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
#3 Failure will never overtake me if my definition to succeed is strong enough
#4 If you want to shine like a sun, first burn like a sun
#5 All of us do not have equal talent. But , all of us have an equal opportunity to develop our talents
#6 Without your involvement you can’t succeed. With your involvement you can’t fail
#7 If you fail, never give up because FAIL means “First Attempt In Learning”.
#8 End is not the end, if fact END means “Effort Never Dies” – If you get No as an answer, remember NO means “Next Opportunity”. So let’s be positive.
#9 Dream, dream, dream. Dreams transform into thoughts and thoughts result in action.
#10 Dreams are not those which comes while we are sleeping, but dreams are those when you don’t sleep before fulfilling them
#11 All birds find shelter during a rain, but an eagle avoids rain by flying above the clouds. Problems are common, but attitude makes the difference!!!
#12 This is my belief: that through difficulties and problems God gives us the opportunity to grow. So when your hopes and dreams and goals are dashed, search among the wreckage, you may find a golden opportunity hidden in the ruins
#13 Work for the things you believe in. If you do not, you are surrendering your fate to others
#14 We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness
#15 A big shot is a little shot who keeps on shooting, so keep trying
