Adversity
One may not reach the dawn save by the path of the night.

Advice
When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.
-Kahlil Gibran
Age
Seek ye counsel of the aged for their eyes have looked on the faces of the years and their ears have hardened to the voices of Life. Even if their counsel is displeasing to you, pay heed to them.
-Kahlil Gibran
Ambition
Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear the thorns in the path, for they draw only corrupt blood.
-Kahlil Gibran, "The Visit of Wisdom"
Art
Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

Attitude
Zeal is a volcano, the peak of which the grass of indecisiveness does not grow.
-Kahlil Gibran, "A Handful of Sand on the Shore"
The tears that you spill, the sorrowful, are sweeter than the laughter of snobs and the guffaws of scoffers.

Beauty
Beauty in not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

Hallow the body as a temple to comeliness and sanctify the heart as a sacrifice to love; love recompenses the adorers.

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
-Kahlil Gibran
Children
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
-Kahlil Gibran
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
-Kahlil Gibran
Choice
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
-Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam
Contentment
Yes, there is a Nirvanah; it is leading your sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.

Dance, Dancing
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Desires
The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.

Difficulty
Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge, for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain.

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.

Dreams
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do.
-Kahlil Gibran
Drinking
Would that I were a dry well, and that the people tossed stones into me, for that would be easier than to be a spring of flowing water that the thirsty pass by, and from which they avoid drinking.

Kahlil Gibran Quotes

kahlil gibran quotes

“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
― Kahlil Gibran, Le Proph├Ęte

Kahlil Gibran

United States writer (born in Lebanon) (1883-1931) Gibran was born in the town of Bsharri in the Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Empire (modern day Lebanon), to Khalil Gibran and Kamila Gibran (Rahmeh). As a young man Gibran emigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero. A member of the New York Pen League, he is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi.
