Excerpts from the Book
Here are some of the most enduring lines that Dr. Kalam penned down in his autobiography:
“Dream is not that which you see while sleeping, it is something that does not let you sleep”
“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts”
“We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness.”
