Here are top 10 inspiring quotes for youth by APJ Abdul Kalam :
1. Youth should not accept any compromise or lower their sights. A society that makes its youth crawl in conformity and enforces. dogmas on their aspirations can never flourish.
2 The two most important life -goals I would like every youth to have: one, increase the amount of time that you have at your disposal- two, increase what you can achieve in the time available.
3. Determination is the power that sees us through all our frustrations and obstacles. It helps in building our will power which is the very basis of success
4. Never give up on your dreams no matter how old you are no matter where you are today. Do not give up dreaming for a better tomorrow.
5. There is no success without failure. Failures are just intermittent blockades. Success is the final destination.
6. Use the difficult situation you are facing to tap into your spirituality and build upon it to achieve something meaningful
7. The world demands the qualities of youth, youth not as defined by a time span of life but defined by a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity and an appetite for adventure over a life of ease.
8. To achieve any success you have to first control your sense and when this is combined with vision you can achieve any goal
9. When I call upon youth to dream lofty dreams I am invoking a vision in them. As you dream so shall you become!
10. Mental strength is the most powerful source of support when we are going through difficult times if we delve into the deep depths of our being we can find the inner strength to keep moving towards our goal- no matter how difficult the path may seem
