Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
It's important to think good, speak good, and do good. If we want to see positive change in the world, then we need to connect to goodness. I try in everything I do, both in business and philanthropy, to make a positive change and do that by doing good.
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity.
Thomas J. Watson
I'm not a person who defends myself very often. I kind of let my actions speak for me.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
