Seventy eight years have gone by since the death of the poet. Yet, his legacy lives on through his words. Perhaps it is the simplicity of his words, and his stunning ability to show great philosophical depth in seemingly ordinary things; that have made Tagore the timeless author/dramatist/poet/painter that he is. Following are just a few beautiful quotes by the great writer.

While a lot is lost in translation, we hope that you can enjoy their beauty nonetheless.

Truly, he was a master of his words.
