    4. Adversities always presents opportunities for introspection.

    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

    NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

    This book must be read with utmost peace and not in a jiffy. You can gain much from it if you are a good reader, otherwise you may think that it is any other book on rocket science. In starting it may seem a book on defence developments and history of the country but the life of Mr former President is worth a read. His life is a great source of inspiration and motivation for all of us, that comprises of not only Indians.

    A Life Changing Book

    This book can change one's life forever. A truly inspirational book and can be universally applied for any individual. Kalam Sir's choice of inspiring his readers through inspirational quotations and spirit of fighting rather than telling much about his struggle which is obvious,tells about the great personality. What Kalam Sir has aimed for is certainly achieved when a person reads his book and aims to give "wings to the fire of the heart".
