Pencil sketch of Rabindranath Tagore.....

This time I tried Rabindranath Tagore pencil sketch.....

Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941). Indian poet. The first Asian poet to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature - for his ground breaking work - Gitanjali.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali poet, philosopher, artist, playwright, composer and novelist. India's first Nobel laureate, Tagore won the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature. He composed the text of both India's and Bangladesh's respective national anthems. Tagore travelled widely and was friends with many notable 20th century figures such as William Butler Yeats, H.G. Wells, Ezra Pound, and Albert Einstein. While he supported Indian Independence, he often had tactical disagreements with Gandhi (at one point talking him out of a fast to the death). His body of literature is deeply sympathetic for the poor and upholds universal humanistic values. His poetry drew from traditional Vaisnava folk lyrics and was often deeply mystical.

Rabindranath Tagore quotes

  • I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.

  • Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

  • You can not cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.

  • Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

  • Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

  • A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.

  • Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.

  • Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.

  • The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.

  • Do not limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
