Impossible is a word from a fool’s dictionary

I visited my niece’s school Nasr in Hyderabad for Independence Day celebrations. Was thrilled as my niece was getting her Prefect badge (how to be a good Prefect at school?). I already look upto her as she is at least 4 inches taller than me, after getting her badge I would look upto her even if she were to be shorter than me!

I heard most part of the speech given by their Chief Guest Smt. Bhavana Saxena, IPS, DIG, Railways. Very well read officer, does make you feel proud about the bureaucrats India has. She read out few lines which were very inspiring, I had to search for it on the net.

“Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” by Muhammad Ali, an American Heavyweight boxer

Not sure who actually wrote those lines as most celebrities have ghost writers, but these lines should be inspiring to everyone, especially to entrepreneurs. Also “Impossible Is Nothing” is being used by Adidas.

But the other reason why the word ‘impossible’ attracts my attention is because my Sanskrit+Hindi teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya, ASC Centre, Bangalore, Mr. Dharam Nath Mishra use to tell the class all the time “Impossible is a word from a fool’s dictionary”. I can never forget his words.

Not sure where DNM is, we haven’t been able to trace him. Sir, if you ever read my post, a big thank you for your wise words.
