I came across this truly beautiful piece by one of my favourite men of the moment, the wonderful Rabindranath Tagore. It’s a section from one of Tagore’s most famous works, Gitanjali. I hope it inspires you in the same way it inspired me.
I know that the day will come when my sight of this earth shall be lost, and life will take its leave in silence, drawing the last curtain over my eyes. Yet stars will watch at night, and morning rise as before, and hours heave like sea waves casting up pleasures and pains. When I think of this end of my moments, the barrier of the moments breaks and I see by the light of death thy world with its careless treasures – Rabindranath Tagore
