Rabindranath Tagore – Words of Wisdom

A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it. Facts are many, but the truth is one. In love all the contradictions of existence merge themselves and are lost. Only in love are unity and duality not at variance. Bondage and liberation are not antagonistic in love. For love is most free and at the same time most bound. True education can never be crammed and pumped from without; rather it must aid in bringing spontaneously to the surface the infinite hoards of wisdom within. Rabindranath Tagore
