RABINDRANATH TAGORE
Bengali poet, novelist and composer
(1861 - 1941)

We do not stray out of all words into the ever silent;
  We do not raise our hands to the void for things beyond hope.
      - Gardener (16) [Hope]

Please is frail like a dewdrop, while it laughs it dies. But sorrow is strong and abiding. Let sorrowful love wake in your eyes.
      - Gardener (27) [Pleasure]

My heart, the bird of the wilderness, has found its sky in your eyes.
      - Gardener (31) [Heart]

Ah me, why did they build my house by the road to the market town?
      - Gardener (4) [Hospitality]

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
      - Gardener (45) [Life]

To the guests that must go, bid God's speed and brush away all traces of their steps.
      - Gardener (45) [Guests]

. . . The wise man warns me that life is but a dewdrop on the lotus leaf.
      - Gardener (46) [Life]

I am restless. I am athirst for faraway things.
  My soul goes out in a longing to touch the skirt of the dim distance.
    O Great Beyond, O the keen call of thy flute!
      I forget, I ever forget, that I have no wings to fly, that I am bound in this spot evermore.
      - Gardener (5) [Immortality]

O Woman, you are not merely the handiwork of God, but also of men; these are ever endowing you with beauty from their own hearts. . . . You are one-half woman and one-half dream.
      - Gardener (59) [Women]

In the world's audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight.
      - Gardener (74) [Nature]

My debts are large, my failures great, my shame secret and heavy; yet I come to ask for my good, I quake in fear lest my prayer be granted.
      - Gitanjali (28) [Prayer]

I thought that my invincible power would hold the world captive, leaving me in a freedom undisturbed. Thus night and day I worked at the chain with huge fires and cruel hard strokes. When at last the work was done and the links were complete and unbreakable, I found that it held me in its grip.
      - Gitanjali (31) [Power]

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.
      - Gitanjali (37) [Progress]

The smile that flickers on baby's lips when he sleeps--does anybody know where it was born? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born in the dream of a dew-washed morning.
      - Gitanjali (61) [Smiles]

In this playhouse of infinite forms I have had my play, and here have I caught sight of him that is formless.
      - Gitanjali (96) [World]

God, the Great Giver, can open the whole universe to our gaze in the narrow space of a single land.
      - Jivan-smitri [God]
