quotes two

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments

By narrow domestic walls

Where words come out from the depth of truth

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way

Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee

Into ever-widening thought and action

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
--Rabindranath Tagore

quotes three

Freedom of mind is the real freedom.

A person whose mind is not free though he may not be in chains is a slave, not a free man.

One whose mind is not free, though he may not be in prison, is a prisoner and not a free man.

One whose mind is not free though alive, is no better than dead.

Freedom of mind is the proof of one's existence.

-Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, Writings And Speeches

quote four

"Don't see others doing better than you beat your own records everyday, because success is a fight between you and yourself"- Chandra Shekhar Azad

quote five

Every citizen of India must remember that... he is an Indian and he has every right in this country but with certain... duties- Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel
