Beauty is truth's smile
when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.

Wonders of light

Through many years, At great expense, Journeying through many countries, I went to see high mountains, I went to the oceans.
Only I had not seen at my very doorstep, The dew drop glistening On the ear of the corn.

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.

Wonders of light

All that is great and sublime in the world is surrounded by emptiness. Its background is simple. It does not want to take the help of anything else to showcase itself.

Anything that makes you weak physically, intellectually and spiritually, reject as poison.

Flowers - hibiscus

Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not! I fear lest it
droop and drop into the dust.
 
I may not find a place in thy garland, but honour it with a touch of
pain from thy hand and pluck it. I fear lest the day end before I am
aware, and the time of offering go by.
 
Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower
in thy service and pluck it while there is time. 


- Gitanjali, Rabindranath Tagore

Mahabharata

Self rides in the chariot of the body.
Intellect the firm-footed charioteer, 
Discursive mind the reins.
Senses are the horses, objects of desire the roads.

Wonders of light

The aim of excellent art is not moving people to tears or
overwhelming them with emotion.
Its aim is to transport the mind to that imaginary world
where complete beauty can be realized.

I came to your shore as a stranger,
I lived in your house as a guest,
I leave your door as a friend, my earth.
