Quotes by Dr.A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
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.
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.
You have to dream before your dreams can come true.
Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.
To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal.
Man needs his difficulties because they are necessary to enjoy success.
We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.
