All This Other Stuff

Gitanjali 35

Rabindranath Tagore

     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 by thee into ever-widening                             
thought and action—
     Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake
