Rabindranath Tagore Quotes

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action– Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore

 

The traveller has to knock at every alien door to come to his own, and one has to wander through all the outer worlds to reach the innermost shrine at the end. My eyes strayed far and wide before I shut them and said ‘Here art thou!’

Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore

 

The real truth is that science is not man’s nature, it is mere knowledge and training. By knowing the laws of the material universe you do not change your deeper humanity. You can borrow knowledge from others, but you cannot borrow temperament.

Nationalism by Rabindranath Tagore

Sadhana : the realisation of life by Rabindranath Tagore

 

To understand anything is to find in it something which is our own, and it is the discovery of ourselves outside us which makes us glad. This relation of understanding is partial, but the relation of love is complete. In love the sense of difference is obliterated and the human soul fulfils its purpose in perfection, transcending the limits of itself and reaching across the threshold of the infinite. Therefore love is the highest bliss that man can attain to, for through it alone he truly knows that he is more than himself, and that he is at one with the All.

We never cared for such useless things as knowledge. We only cared for truth.

Stories from Tagore by Rabindranath Tagore

 

The thing that made a seven-year-old boy’s heart go thump, thump with delight was this one sovereign truth, this reality of all realities: “Once there was a king.”

Stories from Tagore by Rabindranath Tagore

 

If you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars.

Stray Birds by Rabindranath Tagore

Stray Birds by Rabindranath Tagore

 

God may grant us gifts, but the merit of being able to take and hold them must be our own. Alas for the boons that slip through unworthy hands!

The Home and the World by Rabindranath Tagore

 

 

Purity, they imagined, was only becoming in those on whom fortune had not smiled. It is the moon which has room for stains, not the stars.

The Home and the World by Rabindranath Tagore

 

Perfect gain is the best of all; but if that is impossible, then the next best gain is perfect losing.

The Home and the World by Rabindranath Tagore

 

Woman knows man well enough where he is weak, but she is quite unable to fathom him where he is strong. The fact is that man is as much a mystery to woman as woman is to man. If that were not so, the separation of the sexes would only have been a waste of Nature’s energy.

The Home and the World by Rabindranath Tagore
