Kahlil GibranQuotes
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twinbrother.
A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is notthe mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing throughthe valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear thethorns in the path, for they draw only corrupt blood.
All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.
All that spirits desire, spirits attain.
An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.
And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long toplay with your hair.
Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane andconcealed.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dancebetween you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be amoving sea between the shores of your souls.
Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.
Death most resembles a prophet who is without honor in his own land or a poet whois a stranger among his people.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Exaggeration is truth that has lost its temper.
Faith is knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to playwith your hair.
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving methat which you need more than I do.
Hallow the body as a temple to comeliness and sanctify the heart as a sacrifice tolove; love recompenses the adorers.
I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end.
I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindnessfrom the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church.For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lordamong those without dreams and desires.
I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to beignorance, and affection to be art.
If my survival caused another to perish, then death would be sweeter and morebeloved.
