The Wisdom of Gibran: Aphorisms and Maxims
The Wisdom of Gibran Aphorisms and Maxims Author:Kahlil Gibran, Joseph Sheban Copyright 1966. — The writings of Kahlil Gibran left an imprint upon the tihking of Joseph Sheban while he was still in high school. "Gibran was banned for many years, his books being burned in the public square of Lebanon during the Ottoman Empire. His defiance was an invitation to all of us who were young in Lebanon," Mr. Sheban writes. — ...H... more »is research brought him nearer and nearer Gibran, and he eventually wrote a biography of Gibran (Mirrors of the Soul), during which he reread, in both English and Arabic, all of Gibran's works. He also examined other biographies of the great writer and visited, in this country, Europe and the Middle East, many of the individuals who knew Kahlil Gibran personally.
No one is better equipped, therefore, to collect a compendium of Gibran's wisdom than Mr. Sheban, for he knew many of the selections by heart and knew exactly where to find others long treasured by readers throughout the world. Mr. Sheban's understanding of Gibran, then, makes this selection easy but rare access to the mind of the great Gibran and to his philosophy.« less
