Let this be my last word, that I trust in thy love.

Rabindranath Tagore (7 May, 1861 – 7 August, 1941), also known as Rabi Thakur and Kabiguru, was an Indian philosopher, poet, and winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913.


  • God, the Great Giver, can open the whole universe to our gaze in the narrow space of a single land.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In this playhouse of infinite forms I have had my play, and here have I caught sight of him that is formless.
