Wow, do I ever neglect this site; however, I have something for you. It’s not the usual but, important none the less. I have been following a blog called Zen Pencils.
They are illustrators (I say they, I am not even sure if it is a they or him or her…my bad)…anyhow, they take very well written quotes about life and it’s many pursuits and such, quotes from some very intelligent, masterful people and illustrate a comic strip based on the quotes. There are some truly amazing works here.
Kalam was a scientist and India’s 11th president. His nickname was “Missile man of India.” Throughout his career as a scientist, one of Kalam’s goals was to inspire and motivate the youth of India to get excited about science and knowledge. He actually never really wanted to be a scientist, he lead a humble life. He never accepted gifts, never wanted more than he needed… keeping only the few items that would allow for a comfortable life. Save for an immense collection of books. 🙂
Kalam died recently in July of this year.
(I am not sure if this re-post is all good and by the books… my intentions are to share a very good work of art and not to steal thunder…. if I am in error by re-posting this, please let me know. I will remove it with my apologies.)
