WEB DESK: All over the world July 14th is celebrated as Malala Day. On July 12 this year, the little girl who survived a Taliban attack, and later won the Nobel Peace Prize for Pakistan, turned 18.
Here are 9 quotes by Malala that will all add wisdom to our years.
“The terrorists thought they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died.”
“I want education for the sons and daughters of the Taliban and all terrorists and extremists.”
“I don’t want to be remembered as the girl who was shot. I want to be remembered as the girl who stood up.”
“In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It’s their normal life. But in other part of the world, we are starving for education… it’s like a precious gift. It’s like a diamond.”
“Let us remember: one book, one pen, one teacher and one child can change the world.”
“I don’t know why people have divided the whole world into two groups, west and east. Education is neither eastern nor western. Education is education and it’s the right of every human being.”
“People say Malala’s voice is being sold to the world. But I see it as Malala’s voice reaching the world and resonating globally. You should think about what is behind Malala’s voice. What is she saying? I am only talking about education, women’s rights, and peace.”
