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.

In a distant, timeless place, a mysterious prophet walks the sands. At the moment of his departure, he wishes to offer the people gifts but possesses nothing. The people gather round, each asks a question of the heart, and the man's wisdom is his gift. It is Gibran's gift to us, as well, for Gibran's prophet is rivaled in his wisdom only by the founders of the world's great religions. On the most basic topics--marriage, children, friendship, work, pleasure--his words have a power and lucidity that in another era would surely have provoked the description "divinely inspired." Free of dogma, free of power structures and metaphysics, consider these poetic, moving aphorisms a 20th-century supplement to all sacred traditions--as millions of other readers already have
