15 Must Read quotes By APJ Abdul Kalam

6. 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.

7. Great dreams of great dreamers are always transcended.

    Yes. The quotes are inspiring. Very true. His books ‘wings on fire’ and ‘ignited minds’ are so inspiring too. A scientist, teacher, inspirer, writer and above all people’s president. He will be missed 😦 But his fire is still alive in us.
