Quotes about Radhakrishnan
- Radhakrishnan had raised himself step by step. When would he reach the summit of the Mount Everest of his career? Would he aspire to higher things in the life and emulate such a man as Woodrow Wilson, who has at one time a professor; and ended up as President of the United States of America?
- Richard Littlehailes, during a function held on the eve of departure of Radhakrishnan to Oxford University in 1936, as quoted in The First Three Presidents of India, by N. Sundararajan, p. 69
