  9. 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.
  10. 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.

1) The bird is powered by its own life and by its motivation.

3) Climbing to the top demands strength, whether it is to the top of Mount Everest or to the top of your career.
4) When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with      failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.
5) You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
6) 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.
7) Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.
8) Do we not realize that self-respect comes with self-reliance?
9) Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.
10) Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birth right to be a person.

5. “Dream, dream, dream. Dreams transform into thoughts and thoughts result in action.”
rom dealing with the extremely controversial issue of death penalty to dreaming big, from inculcating a healthy curiosity towards science to reaching out to millions of students, from religion to poetry, one of India's most visionary leaders had something truly inspiring to say about everything. 
1. On the youth: 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. 
2. On leadership: 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. 
3. On religion: For great men, religion is a way of making friends; small people make religion a fighting tool. 
4. On corruption: 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. 
5. On scientific development: 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. 
6. On hardship: Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success. 
7. On students: One of the very important characteristics of a student is to question. Let the students ask questions. 
8. On freedom: If we are not free, no one will respect us. 
9. On poetry: Poetry comes from the highest happiness or the deepest sorrow. 
10. On children: While children are studying to be unique, the world around them is trying by all means to make them like everybody else. 
11. On science: Science is global. Einstein's equation E=mc2 has to reach everywhere. Science is a beautiful gift to humanity. We should not distort it. Science does not discriminate between multiple races. 
12. On life: Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person. 
13. On the death penalty: One of the more difficult tasks for me as president was to decide on the issue of confirming capital punishment awarded by courts… to my surprise… almost all cases which were pending had a social and economic bias. This gave me an impression that we were punishing the person who was least involved in the enmity and who did not have a direct motive for committing the crime. 
14. On dreaming: Dream, dream, dream. Dream transforms in to thoughts. And thoughts result in action. 
15. On beauty: I'm not a handsome guy, but I can give my hand to someone who needs help. Beauty is in the heart, not in the face.

So Let's be positive. "Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam of feel LIFE” 

“suffering is the essence of success!!!” 
“Learning gives creativity,
Creativity leads to thinking,
Thinking provides knowledge,
Knowledgemakes you great.” 

“Thinking is the capital, Enterprise is the way, Hard Work is the solution” 

“When learning is purposeful, creativity blossoms.When creativity blossoms, thinking emanates. When thinking emanates, knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit, economy flourishes.” 

“Dream is not the thing you see in sleep but is that thing that doesn't let you sleep.” 

“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''.” 

“Man needs difficulties in life because they are necessary to enjoy the success.” 

“Thinking should become your capital asset, no matter whatever ups and downs you come across in your life.” 

“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts.” 
"Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

“Let not thy winged days be spent in vain. Whenonce gone no gold can buy them back again.” 

“Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension” 

“Failure will never overtake me if my definition to succeed is strong enough” 

“Sometimes, it's better to bunk a class and enjoy with friends, because now, when I look back, marks never make me laugh, but memories do.” 

“I am not handsome but I can give my hand to someone who needs help... Because beauty is required in heart not in face....” 

“Be active! Take on responsibility! Work for the things you believe in. If you do not, you are surrendering your fate to others.” 

“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.” 

“Behind the parents stands the school, and behind the teacher the home.” 

“why be afraid of difficulties, sufferings and problems? When troubles come, try to understand the relevance of your sufferings. Adversity always presents opportunities for introspection.” 

“The sides of the mountain sustain life, not the peak. This is where things grow, experience is gained, and technologies are mastered. The importance of the peak lies only in the fact that it defines the sides.” 

“What makes life in Indian organizations difficult is the widespread prevalence of this very contemptuous pride. It stops us from listening to our juniors, subordinates and people down the line. You cannot expect a person to deliver results if you humiliate him, nor can you expect him to be creative if you abuse him or despise him. The line between firmness and harshness, between strong leadership and bullying, between discipline and vindictiveness is very fine, but it has to be drawn.” 

“Desire, when it stems from the heart and spirit, when it is pure and intense, possesses awesome electromagnetic energy. This energy is released into the ether each night, as the mind falls into the sleep state. Each morning it returns to the conscious state reinforced with the cosmic currents. That which has been imaged will surely and certainly be manifested. You can rely, young man, upon this ageless promise as surely as you can rely upon the eternally unbroken promise of sunrise... and of Spring.”
