Thought for the day, Thursday 22nd July

“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 into ever-widening thought and action – into that heaven of freedom, let my country awake.”
Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941), Bengali poet and the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for Literature (in 1913)
