Closed Path
 
I thought that my voyage had come to its end 
at the last limit of my power,—-that the path before me was closed, 
that provisions were exhausted 
and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity. 

But I find that thy will knows no end in me. 
And when old words die out on the tongue, 
new melodies break forth from the heart; 
and where the old tracks are lost, 
new country is revealed with its wonders
-Rabindranath Tagore

The small wisdom is like water in a glass:
clear, transparent, pure.
The great wisdom is like the water in the sea:
dark, mysterious, impenetrable.
Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
- Rabindranath Tagore
I asked God: Why is it, that which is most trivial, is also the most difficult? Why is it, that the cloistered, cheerless and the most insignificant little bubble in our lane has become such a terrible obstacle? When Your vast world beckons me with all its seasons’ tempting cup of nectar, why is it that I can’t, even for a moment, step out beyond the narrow threshold of the inner quarters of my home? Why must I, in such a glorious world of Yours, with such a precious life given to me, die bit by bit behind these mean brick walls? How insignificant are my life’s activities, how trivial its conventions, habits and parroted clichés; its routine torments. In the end, will the death-coil of this lowly wretchedness triumph and the sublime world of Your creation be defeated?
from “Letter from a Wife” in She: Short Stories of Rabindranath Tagore (2004), translated by Joyasree Mukerji

Europe is supremely good in her beneficence where her face is turned to all humanity; and Europe is supremely evil in her maleficent aspect where her face is turned only upon her own interest, using all her power of greatness for ends which are against the infinite and eternal in Man.
Rabindranath Tagore, Nationalism
