Mangalyaan...


Hmm...saw some news about India's latest space mission to Mars,after Chandrayaan which was launched some time ago!

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.
(source ndtv.com)
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!!

Habits..they define us!


Well friends you must have always wanted to change some or the other habit of yours which you knew wasn't helping you in any way.Or some other which you felt,why not include in your behavior,but kept postponing for want of some internal motivation?

Habits are a set of behavioral patterns that you repeat almost subconsciously until you observe their effect on your lives.Well,why do our parents stop us from doing certain things in our childhood or even when we grow..because if they don't,we might end up being slaves of our habits in the future..It is important therefore to choose which habits we want and eliminate the rest as soon as possible.
I myself for example,keep procrastinating all the time and now I'm like how do I get rid of this? 

So friends,do keep your habits in check and here are some quotes on habits:

  • We are, all of us, creatures of habit, and when the seeming necessity for schooling ourselves in new ways ceases to exist, we fall naturally and easily into the manner and customs which long usage has implanted ineradicably within us.--Edgar Rice Burroughs


        


       


  • You can’t change your future. But, you can change your habits, and surely your habits will change your future.-- APJ Abdul Kalam

  • The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.--Samuel Johnson

  • Men's natures are alike; it is their habits that separate them. --Confucius


  • Habits are at first cobwebs, then cables.--Spanish Proverb

  • Whatever you habitually think yourself to be, that you are. You must form, now, a greater and better habit; you must form a conception of yourself as a being of limitless power, and habitually think that you are that being. It is the habitual, not the periodical thought that decides your destiny.--Wallace D Wattles
