    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.

    For the teenagers, To dream

    "If you want to leave your footprints in the sands of time, do not drag your feet."

    These are one of the most enduring lines that still lay etched in my memory. I have read this book long back, and I don't remember when, but surely the essence remains with me even today.

    This book is best suited for reading for the teenagers, to dream and to dare.
    It shows, how a person from the modest background ends up in being the First Citizen of a nation of one billion.
    It shows how a scientist, devo...

    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
