    Great people , Great thoughts

    best line: the youth of today must unlearn this self defeating way of life. the culture of working for material possessions and rewards must be discarded.

    1. What you imagine, is what you transpire.What you believe is what you achieve.
    2. A good plan executed violently right now is far better than a perfect plan executed next week.
    3. Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension.
    These are some great line of this Book
