Section A

  1. चिंतन एक तरह का खेल है, यह तब तक प्रारम्भ नहीं होता, जब तक एक विरोधी पक्ष न हो ।
    Thinking is like a game, it does not begin unless there is an opposite team.
  2. दूरदर्शी निर्णय तभी लिए जाते हैं जब अंतर्ज्ञान और तर्क का परस्पर मेल होता है
    Visionary decision-making happens at the intersection of intuition and logic.
  3. सभी भटकने वाले गुम नहीं होते हैं ।
    Not all who wander are lost.
  4. रचनात्मकता की प्रेरणा लौकिकता में चमत्कार ढूँढ़ने के प्रयास से उपजती है।
    Inspiration for creativity springs from the effort to look for the magical in the mundane.

Section B

  1. लड़कियाँ बंदिशों के तथा लड़के अपेक्षा के बोझ तले दबे हुए होते हैं – दोनों ही समान रूप से हानिकारक व्यवस्थाएँ हैं ।
    Girls are weighed down by restrictions, boys with demands two equally harmful disciplines.
  2. गणित ज्ञान का संगीत है।
    Mathematics is the music of reason.
  3. जिस समाज में अधिक न्याय होता है, उस समाज को दान की कम आवश्यकता होती है ।
    A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity.
  4. शिक्षा वह है जो विद्यालय में सीखी गई बातों को भूल जाने के बाद भी शेष रह जाती है।
    Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
