Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh: India today successfully launched Mangalyaan to Mars, a 450-crore mission that has been in the making for over 15 months with over 500 scientists working on it.
This brought memories of a great space scientist and an ex-president,a man so down-to-earth in his mannerisms and messages that it makes me wonder :Is it so easy to be humble even after gaining so much success?
Yes,I am speaking about Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam. Some of his quotes below exemplify his simple living,high thinking nature:
- Dream, Dream Dream,Dreams transform into thoughts,And thoughts result in action.
- For great men, religion is a way of making friends; small people make religion a fighting tool.
- It Is Very Easy To Defeat Someone, But It Is Very Hard To Win Someone
- Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.
- 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.
- Thinking is the capital, Enterprise is the way, Hard Work is the solution
- Suffering is the essence of success!!!
- Learning gives creativity.Creativity leads to thinking.Thinking provides knowledge.Knowledge makes you great.
- When learning is purposeful, creativity blossoms. When creativity blossoms, thinking emanates. When thinking emanates, knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit, economy flourishes.
- All Birds find shelter during a rain.But Eagle avoids rain by flying above the Clouds.Problems are common, but attitude makes the difference!!!
- Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension
And these two for all my fellow-engineers-in-the-making :P
|Marks are important though!!|
