Tagore

 

Rabindranath Tagore
1861-1941

"Where The Mind is
Without Fear"

 
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow
          domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the
          dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought
          and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
