If you shut your door to all errors truth will be shut out – Rabindranath Tagore

But I know life is simple, however complex the organism may be; and everything goes to pieces when the living truth of the central simplicity is lost.

Life is not an artificial canal to be confined within prescribed channels. When once this is clearly seen in our own lives, then we shall not be able to be misled by any more fabrications.
The traveller has to knock at every alien door to come to his own and he has to wander through all the outer world’s to reach the innermost shrine at the end.
If you shut your door to all errors truth will be shut out. Rabindranath Tagore
