Ten Motivating quotes by Dr. Abdul Kalam


APJ Abdul Kalam will be etched in our hearts forever.  Dr. Abdul Kalam Sir, was our inspiration...our beloved inventor. His life served to prove a Sanskrit doctrine my parents taught me as a child, "विद्या विनयेन शोभते" (Vidya Vinayen Shobhate) which means that that the more knowledgeable are always humble. As a tribute to him, I'm sharing some of my favourite Dr. Abdul Kalam quotes.

Ten Motivating Quotes by APJ Abdul Kalam

  •  Excellence is a continuous process and not an accident.
  • We must think and act like a nation of a billion people and not like that of a million people. Dream, dream, dream.
  •  Unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength.
  •  Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.
  • Science is a beautiful gift to humanity; we should not distort it.
  • Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.
  •  It is very easy to defeat someone, but it is very hard to win someone
  •  Those who cannot work with their hearts achieve but a hollow, half-hearted success that breeds bitterness all around.
  •  You see, God helps only people who work hard. That principle is very clear.
  •  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.

The real hero of the nation, Dr. Abdul Kalam even after passing away remains in our thoughts, continues to motivate us.

Which of Dr. Kalam's quote is your favourite? Do let me know.

  3. Great tribute to a true Mahatma! He will always be in our hearts, as you rightly said. It is very difficult yo choose which quote is the best. Still, mentioning one -
    '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.'
