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.

A Quote by Rabindranath Tagore on prayer, pray, fearless, strength, freedom, failure, and god

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.

A Quote by Satish Kumar on peace and prayer

The Peace Prayer
Lead me from death to life, from falsehood to truth.
Lead me from despair to hope, from fear to trust.
Lead me from hate to love, from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.
Peace. Peace. Peace.
