Inspiring article, whatever your opinion of Imran Khan and as old as the article is. Couldn't decide what to quote - all so quotable - so did the easy thing and picked out the lesson summaries...
"Life Lesson One: Believe in yourself and trust your own judgement, not that of others."
"Life Lesson Two: It says in the Koran: 'Keep the money you need and give the rest away'."
"Life Lesson Three: Do not fear death. Once you do not fear death, you are liberated from all fears and can achieve all your goals."
