I bought this book don t worry I didn t pay much for it under the impression it was a collection of poetry It is not I know, I know I should have looked into it researchfailWhat it actually is is a collection of how shall I put this pieces of personal philosophy Or, slightly less generously but far honestly, a seemingly unending string of trite platitudes.I buddy read this with my wife and her reaction was Oh my god I feel like I ve just read a thousand refrigerator magnets She s not wrong.I g [...]
I read this exquisite gem of a book last night There are only eighty five pages of aphorisms, poems and parables but when I finished it I breathed a sigh of expectancy and felt that I had read a huge novel What a wonderful experience.Gibran has a depth to him that I find quite unsurpassed I felt as though his words had entered my very soul.Some examples If your heart is a volcano how shall you expect flowers to bloom in your hands He who can put his finger upon that which divides good from evil [...]
I AM FOREVER walking upon these shores,Betwixt the sand and the foam,The high tide will erase my foot prints,And the wind will blow away the foam.But the sea and the shore will remainForeveris book is one of my first favorites , its one of these books i lost count on how many times I ve read , Gibran himself was one of my first favorite writers , he even may have been the first , i read all his books , everyone of his works Arabic versions when i was in highschool , and though i loved all his wo [...]
If I were a little younger, a little naive, a little less weighed down by my worldly wisdom which isn t much , I would have caught hold of every person I care about and read the aphorisms aloud I would have made them taste the beauty and the truth the musings are dipped in I would have beseech ed them to open their hearts, to let the powerful words seep into their souls I would have asked them to read a quote, one at a time, and wonder like a child while summoning all their life s experience I [...]

There are some books that you can read really quickly and finish it and there are some that you need to chew and devour, bit by bit The beauty of the second type of books is that it gets better with every reading and it is something that you never get tired of reading, again and again Moreover, these are books that offer different interpretations, each time you read them, depending on what you are feeling and how you want to think.I was accidentally introduced to one such book recently, Sand and [...]

Gibran s ability to encapsulate a profound concept in two or three lines is incredible.There s so much to think about on every page of this small book that it will require multiple readings to really appreciate what he s saying That s not to say that he s obscure, because he s certainly not, he s mostly cuttingly precise and clear It s that his message is, like most great teachers, a challenging one that for most of us certainly me would take a massive change of character and life style to reali [...]

I read this one a long time ago the one translated to Arabic at that time it didn t make any sense to me It just made me think that Gibran is some sort of a crazy man who knew how to write thousands of meaningless poems Recently, I had this strange desire to read something for Gibran, so I took this book and started reading it again and GOD I COULDN T PUT IT DOWN The only difference this time was that I have taken the original one written in English Yeah, translation can be really bad sometimes.
