A bit about Rabindranath Tagore ...

Born May 7, 1861, Calcutta, India. Died Aug. 7, 1941, Calcutta. Bengali poet, writer, composer, and painter. The son of Debendranath Tagore, he published several books of poetry, including Manasi, in his 20's. His later religious poetry was introduced to the West in Gitanjali (1912). Through international travel and lecturing, he introduced aspects of Indian culture to the West and vice versa. He spoke ardently in favour of Indian independence; as a protest against the Massacre of Amritsar, he repudiated the knighthood he had received in 1915. He founded an experimental school in Bengal where he sought to blend Eastern and Western philosophies; it became Vishva-Bharati University (1921). He was awarded the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to...

Jul 10, 2011

Speaking of adversity, what about Shakespear's "Sweet are the uses of adversity, which like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewell in his head".
