SOME QUOTABLE QUOTES WORTH PONDERING ABOUT


'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.

  2. Great choice of so many WISE WORDS,
    I particularly enjoyed the Nelson Mandela quote;
    'A good heart and a good mind are always a formidable combination'.
    WISE WORDS indeed!
