A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore

" I have had my invitation to this world's festival, and thus my life has been blessed. My eyes have seen and my ears have heard.
  It was my part at this feast to play upon my instrument, and I have done all i could.
  Now , I ask, has the time come at last when i may go in and see thy face and offer thee my silent salutation ?"

A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore on life, prayer, strength, freedom, and courage

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it.


Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength.


Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom.


Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone; but let me find the grasp of your

hand in my failure.

Grant me that I may not be a coward,
feeling your mercy in my success alone;
but let me find
the grasp of your hand in my failure.

A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore

Human is immortal; therefore he/she must die endlessly.
For life is a creative idea;
it can only find itself in changing forms.

A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore on tagore, break up, love, and pain

-The Apprehension-
The more you heap my hands
with the coins of love,
won't it expose the more the deceit's depth
that's within me?
Better for me to pay my piling debts
and sail away in an empty boat.
Better that I should starve and you withdraw
your heart filled with nectar
and go away.

To dull my pain
I might wake it in you;
to lighten my load
I might press it on you;
my anguished cry of loneliness well might
keep you awake at night -
such are my fears, why I don't speak freely.
If you can forget,
please do.

On a lonesome trail I was, when you came along,
your eyes set on my face.
I thought I'd say, 'Why not come with me?
Say something to me, please!'
But all of a sudden, as I gazed at your face,
I felt afraid.
I saw a dormant fire's secret smoulder
in the obscure depths
of your heart's darkest night.

Anchor, should I suddenly fan
the flames of your penance into a blazing fire,
wouldn't that stark light slash all veils asunder
and lay my poverty bare?
What have I to offer as sacred fuel
to your passion's sacrificial fire?
Therefore I say to you with humility:
With the memory of our meeting
let me return alone

A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore on verse, poem, tagore, god, peace, and gitanjali

Thou hast made me endless, such is thy pleasure. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life.

This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales, and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new.

At the immortal touch of thy hands my little heart loses its limits in joy and gives birth to utterance ineffable.

Thy infinite gifts come to me only on these very small hands of mine. Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill.
