A New Years Wish

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 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.

Rabindranath Tagore

I love the writings of Rabindranath Tagore - especially, "The Prophet". I'm glad you see the beauty in them! A wise choice to grace a new year's morning.
