Rabindranath Tagore – Words of Inspiration

I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I will go through another door – or I will make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.

We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility.

The burden of the self is lightened with a laugh at myself.

You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don’t let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
Rabindranath Tagore

I have no doubt whatever that most people live, whether physically, intellectually, or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed…. We all have reservoirs of life to draw upon, of which we do not dream.
