'W' IS FOR WISDOM
Friends, this time i thought of presenting my contribution for the letter 'W' in a style which so far I've not attempted. This is a collection of thoughts of three great men, which are not only deeply inspiring but would be instrumental in influencing the thinking process of generations to come.
Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel laureate; his seminal work "Gitanjali" a work of poetry, originally written in Bengali was translated into English by Tagore himself. His poem titled,"Mind without fear"is an example of profundity ,lyricism and sweet simplicity. It is one of my favorite poems.
Nelson Mandela,who sacrificed so much for a just cause and ultimately succeeded in his mission of ending the scourge of apartheid in Africa.
What better way to learn how to stop expending our energies on non issues than through the wisdom which lies in the few precious words of William James.
Friends, hope you like this new approach for a change.
