India was secular even when Muslims hadn’t come here and Christians hadn’t set foot on this soil. It is not as if India became secular after they came. They came with their own modes of worship, and they, too, were given a place of honor and respect.

Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.
Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.
You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
There is greatness in the fear of God, contentment in faith of God, and honour in humility.
It is a matter of shame that in the morning the birds should be awake earlier than you.
Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me.
Honor and self sacrifice. Death does not diminish these qualities in a soldier. We shall remember.
