Rabindranath Tagore
b. 5-7-1861; Calcutta, India
d. 8-7-1941; Jorasanko

Bengali polymath Rabindranath Tagore was a poet, novelist, musician, visual artist, playwright and the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize in Literature (1913 - “because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West”).

Rabindranath Tagore quotes ~
• “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.”
• “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”
• “I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”
• “Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.”
• “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.”
• “Emancipation from the bondage of the soil is no freedom for the tree.”
• “Trees are Earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.”
• “Every difficulty slurred over will be a ghost to disturb your repose later on.”
• “Everything comes to us that belongs to us if we create the capacity to receive it.”
• “Music fills the infinite between two souls.”
• “What is Art? It is the response of man's creative soul to the call of the Real.”
• “I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.”
• “Those who own much have much to fear.”
• “We live in the world when we love it.”

Ida M. Tarbell,

Ida Minerva Tarbell
b. 11-5-1857; Erie Co., Pennsylvania
d. 1-6-1944; Bridgeport, CT (pneumonia)

Ida Tarbell, known as one of the leading “muckrakers”, or investigative journalist, of her day. She is best-known for her 1904 book The History of the Standard Oil Company, which was inspired by the unfair tactics that put her father and many other small oil companies out of business.

Tarbell had the soul of an educator, and loved to write. She was able to teach through the magazine articles that included biographies such as a 20 part series on Abraham Lincoln in McClure's Magazine.

Ida Tarbell quotes ~
• “Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it none exists – with it all things are possible.”
• “How defeated and restless the child that is not doing something in which it sees a purpose, a meaning! It is by its self-directed activity that the child, as years pass, finds its work, the thing it wants to do and for which it finally is willing to deny itself pleasure, ease, even sleep and comfort.”
• “Rockefeller and his associates did not build the Standard Oil Co. in the board rooms of Wall Street banks. They fought their way to control by rebate and drawback, bribe and blackmail, espionage and price cutting, by ruthless ... efficiency of organization.”
• “Perhaps our national ambition to standardize ourselves has behind it the notion that democracy means standardization. But standardization is the surest way to destroy the initiative, to benumb the creative impulse above all else essential to the vitality and growth of democratic ideals.”
• “... this classification of muckraker, which I did not like. All the radical element, and I numbered many friends among them, were begging me to join their movements. I soon found that most of them wanted attacks. They had little interest in balanced findings. Now I was convinced that in the long run the public they were trying to stir would weary of vituperation, that if you were to secure permanent results the mind must be convinced.” ~ Muckraker or Historian
