THE BENGALI POET AND WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE, IQIJ
PORTRAIT IN COLOURED CHALKS, BY JEAN PARKE
“You must rush and run if you would fight; or if you would take the best places in the market. But there are ideas
which require infinite space and infinite time in Heaven's light to mature; and the fruit they produce can survive years
°f neglect. The East can patiently wait until the West, in its mad hurry after the expedient, loses its breath and stops.
The East knows she is immortal, and that she will appear again and again in man's history with her gift of life. Love
wins beauty, and the fruits of suffering; and thus shall wait the East till her time has come.''—Tagore.
