Malala’s books

Malala Yousafzai:

“Let us pick up our books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons.” Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for wanting an education and survived, in her keynote speech to the United Nations, 12th July 2013.” I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban

“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”

“Read thousands of books and I will power myself with knowledge. Pens and books are the weapons that defeat terrorism.”

“Outside his office my father had a framed copy of a letter written by Abraham Lincoln to his son’s teacher, translated into Pashto. It is a very beautiful letter, full of good advice. “Teach him, if you can, the wonder of booksBut also give him quiet time to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun, and the flowers on a green hillside,” it says. “Teach him it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that there are many millions of children like me across the world who fight every single day for their right to go to school. I hope that by working together we will one day realise our dream of education for every child, in every corner of the world.”
