A New Country With New Wonders

If you've noticed (and even if you haven't) I only ever quote a handful of people here, all of them reflecting emotions I hope to emulate or ideas I aspire to incorporate. Niko is easily the most often quoted, as he is my mentor when it comes to nurturing a carpe diem attitude. Next in line is Rabindranath Tagore, whose life and works I've described before. Last night, I pulled "Gitanjali" from the stack on my nightstand, and this was the first thing I read, "When old words die out on the tongue, new melodies break forth from the heart; and where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with its wonders."
