I find the words of Rabindranth Tagore to be full of wisdom and beauty. So I'm going to post a few of his quotes here.

"Facts are many, but the truth is one."

"He who wants to do good knocks at the gate; he who loves finds the gate open."

"Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom."

"Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation."

"The newer people, of this modern age, are more eager to amass than to realize."

"To be outspoken is easy when you do not wait to speak the complete truth."

"Beauty is in the ideal of perfect harmony which is in the universal being; truth the perfect comprehension of the universal mind."

"Children are living beings - more living than grown-up people who have built shells of habit around themselves. Therefore it is absolutely necessary for their mental health and development that they should not have mere schools for their lessons, but a world whose guiding spirit is personal love."

"Gross utility kills beauty. We now have all over the world huge production of things, huge organizations, huge administrations of empire - all obstructing the path of life. Civilization is waiting for a great consummation, for an expression of its soul in beauty. This must be your contribution to the world."

"In love all the contradiction of existence merge themselves and are lost. Only in love are unity and duality not at variance. Love must be one and two at the same time. Only love is motion and rest in one. Our heart ever changes its place till it finds love, and then it has its rest."

"Religion, like poetry, is not a mere idea, it is expression. The self-expression of God is in the endless variety of creation; and our attitude toward the Infinite Being must also in its expression have a variety of individuality ceaseless and unending. Those sects which jealously build their boundaries with too rigid creeds excluding all spontaneous movement of the living spirit may hoard their theology but they kill religion."

That's all I have for now. I will have to continue my admiration another time. Peace and love to you.
