Friday’s Piece

“There is no emotion in a human creature purer or sweeter than the hidden feeling that awakens to life unawares in the heart of a maiden to fill the emptiness of her breast with enchanting melodies and make her days like the poets’s dream and her nights like the prophet’s vision.”

(From Spirits Rebllious by Kahlil Gibran, 1883 – 1931)

“Love one another, but make not a bond of love,

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.”

(From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, 1883 – 1931)

“If any of you would bring to judgement the unfaithful wife,

Let him also weight the heart of her husband in scales, and measure his soul with measurements.”

(Kahlil Gibran, 1883 – 1931)

Monday’s Piece

I am not wedded to any particular dogma – Christian or otherwise – and (lest I be misunderstood) I am certainly not in the book business! But I would recommend to anyone seeking a better understanding of life and death the writings of Kahlil Gibran – especially ‘The Prophet’ – “every page has some beautiful and liberating thought”.

“His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life….”
