One must have ambition and one must understand the minds ... of men.

We must always go for the best. Do not compromise on quality. Reject if it is not the best - not only the best in India, but globally.

The success of the young entrepreneur will be the key to India's transformation in the new millennium.

It [further education] is most essential, otherwise I would not have educated my sons. I learnt the hard way. Maybe if I had some education my success and growth would have been quicker.

I, as school kid, was a member of the Civil Guard, something like today's NCC. We had to salute our officers who went round in jeeps. So I thought one day I will also ride in a jeep and somebody else will salute me.

Dhirubhai will go one day. But Reliance's employees and shareholders will keep it afloat. Reliance is now a concept in which the Ambanis have become irrelevant.

Give (your people) the youth a proper environment. Motivate them. Extend them the support they need. Each one of them has infinite source of energy. They will deliver.

The most important external environment is the government of India. You have to sell your ideas to the government. Selling the idea is the most important thing, and for that I'll meet anybody in the government. I am willing to salaam anyone. One thing you won't find in me and that is an ego.

Yes, I believe in God, but I don't perform a daily puja. I don't have any gurus. Ek baat hai,destiny, koi cheez hai.

Don't give up, courage is my conviction.

You have to take the calculated risk,to earn something

Think big, think fast, think ahead. Ideas are no one's monopoly.

If you don't build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.

You will never reach your destination if you stop & throw stones at every dog that barks...Better keep biscuits & Move on.

I am deaf to the word ‘no’.

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks. Better we keep biscuits and go.

We bet on people.

My advice to young entrepreneurs is not to accept defeat in the face of odds, and challenge negative forces with hope, self-confidence and conviction.

If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.

You do not require an invitation to make profits.

Secret of my success was to have ambition and know minds of men.

A vision has to be within reach not in the air. It has to be achievable.

Tax is for the poor or the stupid people.

Does making money excite me? No, but I have to make money for my shareholders. What excites me is achievement, doing something difficult.

Between my past, the present and the future, there is one common factor: Relationship and Trust. This is the foundation of our growth.

My commitment is to produce at the cheapest price and the best quality.

A motivated manpower is the most important thing.

Play on the frontiers of technology. Be ahead of the tomorrows.

There is no difference between our methods and those of anybody bu else-the only difference is that our motivation and dedication he is much greater.

We must always go for the best. Do not compromise on quality. Reject if it is not the best – not only the best in India, but globally.

The problem with Indians is that we have lost the habit of thinking big!

I am not a believer in religious rituals. I was brought up in the Arya Samaj environment which taught us to shun rituals. Puja, of course, but simple, elegant and brief.

Growth has no limit at Reliance. I keep revising my vision. Only when you dream it you can do it.

You accuse me of black marketing, but which of you has not slept with me?

I had dreams of starting a company like Burmah Shell.

Dhirubhai will go one day. But Reliance’s employees and shareholders will keep it afloat. Reliance is now a concept in which the Ambanis have become irrelevant.

There is no question about that. Business is my hobby. It is not a burden to me. In any case Reliance now can run without me.

I consider myself a pathfinder. I have been excavating the jungle and making the road for others to walk. I like to be the first in everything I do.

Reliance’s success is a reflection of India’s capabilities, the talent of her people and the potential of her entrepreneurs, engineers, managers, and workers.

I sincerely believe that Indians have the ability to compete with the best in the world.

We can’t change our rulers, but we can least teach them how to rule us.

Challenge negative forces with hope, self-confidence and conviction. I believe that ambition and initiative will ultimately triumph.

We cannot change our rulers, but we can change the way they rule us.

I dream of India becoming a great economic superpower.

Never. Till my last breath I will work. To retire there is only one place-the cremation ground.

Keep your morale high, in spite of setbacks. At the end you are bound to succeed.

Our dreams have to be bigger. Our ambitions higher. Our commitment deeper. And our efforts greater. This is my dream for Reliance and for India.

Don’t give up, courage is my conviction.

Often people think opportunity is a matter of luck. I believe opportunities are all around us. Some seize it. Others stand and let it pass by.

True entrepreneurshi p comes only from risk-taking.

Only when you dream it you can do it.

Pursue your goals even in the face of difficulties, and convert adversities into opportunities.

If you work with determination and with perfection, success will follow.

Meeting the deadlines is not good enough, beating the deadlines is my expectation.

For those who dare to dream, there is a whole world to win.

Think big, think fast, think ahead. Ideas are no one’s monopoly.
