Einstein and Tagore met in 1930. Among other things they discussed truth and beauty. The authorized text of their meeting was published by 'The Modern Review'. The Modern Review was a monthly magazine of outstanding quality, scope and depth published between 1907 - 1955 in Calcutta. The excerpt here is from the authorized version of their conversation. There are different versions on the internet. Check out The Modern Review with Uncle Google. Fascinating stuff.


Excerpt from 'The Secrets of Angling' by John Dennys, 1613. It apparently is the first fishing poem in English literature. In this section he discusses the pros and cons of angling. Some things never change. Judge for yourself here.
