Rabindranath Tagore on new creations: a fundamental human need

Rabindranath Tagore Kalakshetra 2014

“It is not the distinctive quality of man to be a mere repetition of his ancestors. Animals cling to the nests of their effete habits; man expresses himself age after age in new creations.”

Rabindranath Tagore in 1931
Tagore on Gandhi, New Delhi 2008, p. 31
