  • We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us. - R. Tagore
.

Rabindranath Tagore; born Robindronath Thakur (1861 – 1941) was a polymath, poet, musician, and artist from the Indian subcontinent.
He reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art with Contextual Modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
That's why he is sometimes referred to as "the Bard of Bengal".
As author of the "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse" of Gitanjali, he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913.
Tagore's poetic songs were viewed as spiritual and mercurial; 
however, his "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside Bengal.
Between 1878 and 1932, Tagore set foot in more than thirty countries on five continents.
In his travels, Tagore interacted with many intellectuals such as: Henri Bergson, Albert Einstein, Robert Frost, Thomas Mann, George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells, and Romain Rolland.
Tagore's remit expanded to science in his last years. 
His respect for scientific laws and his exploration of biology, physics, and astronomy informed his poetry. 
Some his later work wove the process of science and the narratives of scientists into stories. 
Tagore denounced both nationalism and imperialism:
He maintained that, even for those at the extremes of poverty, "there can be no question of blind revolution"; preferable to it was a "steady and purposeful education".
Tagore's last five years were marked by chronic pain and two long periods of illness, until his death in 1941 at 80 yers old.

  • Oftentimes, living in order to ease the suffering of others, may help us transcend our own suffering.
.

Mary Ann Evans (1819 – 1880) known by her pen-name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. 
She wrote seven novels, most of which are set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight.
Although female authors were published under their own names during her lifetime, she wanted to escape the stereotype of women's writing being limited to lighthearted romances. 
She also wanted to have her fiction judged separately from her already extensive and widely known work as an editor and critic. 
Another factor in her use of a pen name may have been a desire to shield her private life from public scrutiny, thus avoiding the scandal that would have arisen because of her relationship with the married George Henry Lewes.
Readers in the Victorian era praised her novels for their depictions of rural society. 
Much of the material for her prose was drawn from her own experience. 
She shared with Wordsworth the belief that there was much value and beauty to be found in the mundane details of ordinary country life.

  • We must try not to be blinded by the spectacle.
.

Laozi or Lao Tzu "Old Master" (C. 601 - 531 BC) was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. 
He is the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching, the founder of philosophical Taoism, and a deity in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions.
The story of Laozi has taken on strong religious overtones since the Han dynasty. 
As Taoism took root, Laozi was worshipped as a god.
Belief in the revelation of the Tao from the divine Laozi resulted in the formation of the Way of the Celestial Masters, the first organized religious Taoist sect.
In the mid-twentieth century, a consensus emerged among scholars that the historicity of the person known as Laozi is doubtful and that the Tao Te Ching was "a compilation of Taoist sayings by many hands".
Alan Watts urged more caution, holding that this view was part of an academic fashion for skepticism about historical spiritual and religious figures and stating that not enough would be known for years – or possibly ever – to make a firm judgment.
According to traditional accounts, Laozi was a scholar who worked as the Keeper of the Archives for the royal court of Zhou.
This reportedly allowed him broad access to the works of the Yellow Emperor and other classics of the time.
