Rabindranath Tagore

Take a moment for  Rabindranath Tagore  who died on this day in 1941.

I have an old copy of his Fireflies from the turn of the century and he
 himself said;- 

"Fireflies had their origin in China and Japan where thoughts were very often claimed from me in my hand writing on fans and pieces of silk" 

“The shade of my tree is for passers-by, its fruit for the one for whom I wait.”

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” Rabindranath Tagore
