This is one of my favorite books of all time and a keeper. I happen to have two copies, so I am trading one, otherwise I would never let this book go. In my mind, it is a must read for everyone. Something to think about for every stage of life.
I just finished reading The Prophet on Friday. This was part of an assigment I had been given. As much as my inner cynical voice wants to dismiss the book as sentimental clap trap, I can not. This is an incredible book on what it is to live a human truthful life.
I am shocked and dismayed by the tags applied to this Treasure. The professional review above bears repeating: "A brilliant man's philosophy on love, marriage, joy and sorrow, time, friendship and much more." If some of the passages in this book do not move you to tears you have no heart!
there is more wisdom condensed into the pages of this book than i would have imagined possible to exist, let alone to express so succinctly. In my opinion, this book is truly a pinnacle of comprehension on this planet.
Beautifully done. I still prefer to read the words myself, but when I wasn't able to read....this was a blessing to me. No one writes more beautifully than Kahlil Gibran...and hearing his words spoken...is beautiful.
This is so wonderful. I have two copies and wanted share one. If every you feel like a ship lost at sea with no anchor or as though you're standing in the eye of a tornado with no way out--pick up this book. It's full of timeless wisdom that is sure to bring you back to your center.
