Rabindranath Tagore, a name that fills our heart with massive respect and admiration. A single personality who has been inspiring myriad of filmmakers since decades. His stories still make sense, and frankly better than some of our contemporary tales. On his 156th birthday, let’s spare some time and walk down the lane of his literary works. 

Although there are many, but these 10 quotes specifically hit the right chords of my heart. 

“Love is an endless mystery cause it has nothing else to explain it”

“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.”

“Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.” 

“Love does not claim possession, but gives freedom.” 

“I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, in life after life, in age after age forever.”

“Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for she was born in another time.”

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

“Do not say, ‘It is morning,’ and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.”

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.”

“The flower which is single need not envy the thorns that are numerous.”

Wish you a very happy birthday, Gurudev!
