One of India’s most renowned scientist and former president APJ Abdul Kalam passed away on Monday evening of cardiac arrest while giving a lecture at the Indian Institute of Management, Shillong.

In his 83 years of life, the ‘Missile Man of India’ touched many lives, inspired many children and paved way for better education and research in the country. Here is a collection of some of the most inspiring quotes by India’s most popular president:

1. Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.

2. For great men, religion is a way of making friends; small people make religion a fighting tool.

3. You have to dream before your dreams can come true.

4. Excellence is a continuous process and not an accident.

5. Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

6. Be more dedicated to making solid achievements than in running after swift but synthetic happiness.

7. All Birds find shelter during a rain. But Eagle avoids rain by flying above the Clouds

8. If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.

9. Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence.

10. My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed. These are great qualities that they must work towards. This is my message to the young people.
