Jawaharlal Nehru 55th death anniversary: Top 5 quotes by India’s first Prime Minister

  • We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
  • A great disaster is a symbol to us to remember all the big things of life and forget the small things, of which we have thought too much.
  • Time is not measured by the passing of yaers but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.
  • The ambition of the greatest men of our generation has been to wipe every tear from every eye. That may be beyond us, but so long as there are tears and suffering, so long our work will not be over.
  • It is science alone that can solve the problems of hunger and poverty, of insanitation and illiteracy, of superstition and deadening custom and tradition, of vast resources running to waste, or a rich country inhabited by starving people... Who indeed could afford to ignore science today? At every turn we have to seek its aid... The future belongs to science and those who make friends with science.
