From the dust jacket:
To those familiar with the writings of Kahlil Gibran -- artist, poet, philosopher of the Arabic-speaking people and author of the immortal THE PROPHET -- this book will be a welcome event, not only because of its poetic style but also because the gems of wisdom it contains are startlingly applicable to today's dilemmas.
Ancient wisdom can solve modern problems, and Kahlil Gibran shows the way clearly in his "Sayings." In simple language, he probes the complexities of life and death and manifests his profound love of God, nature, and man, and a tender compassion for the world's oppressed.
