Only love and death change all things." Khalil Gibran

You often say ; I would give , but only to the deserving, The trees in your orchard say not so , nor the flocks in your pasture.

See first that youyourself deserve to be a giver , and an insturument of giving. For in truth it is life that gives unto life-while you , who deem yourself a giver , is but a witness. Khalil Gibran

For love is sufficient unto love. Khalil Gibran

Know, therefore, that from the greater silence I shall return... Forget not that I shall come back to you... A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me. Khalil Gibran

The human heart cries out for help; the human soul implores us for deliverance; but we do not heed their cries, for we neither hear nor understand. But the man who hears and understands we call mad, and flee from him. Thus the nights pass, and we live in unawareness; and the days greet us and embrace us. But we live in constant dread of day and night. Khalil Gibran

We are limited, not by our abilities, but by our vision. Khalil Gibran

Love is not without its flaws. The stronger the love, the more it tests you. Compassion and empathy will make true love persist. Khalil Gibran

We stood up and bade each other farewell, but love and despair stood between us like two ghosts, one stretching his wings with his fingers over our throats, one weeping and the other laughing hideously. As I took Selma's hand and put it to my lips, she came close to me and placed a kiss on my forehead, then dropped on the wooden bench. She shut her eyes and whispered softly, "Oh, Lord God, have mercy on me and mend my broken wings! Khalil Gibran

You are persecuted and despised. It were better that a person should be the oppressed than that he should be the oppressor; and fitter that he should be a victim to the frailty of human instincts than that he should be powerful and crush the flowers of life and disfigure the beauties of feeling with his desire. Khalil Gibran

Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.... Accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.... Khalil Gibran

If you could hear the whispering of the dream you would hear no other sound. Khalil Gibran

In truth we gaze but do not see, and hearken but do not hear; we eat and drink but do not taste. And there lies the difference between Jesus of Nazareth and ourselves. His senses were all continually made new, and the world to Him was always a new world. Khalil Gibran

Master, Master of Light, Whose eye dwells in the seeking fingers of the blind, You are still despised and mocked, A man too weak and infirm to be God, A God too much man to call forth adoration. Khalil Gibran

Love and what generates it. Rebellion and what creates it. Liberty and what nourishes it. Three manifestations of God. And God is the conscience of the rational world. Khalil Gibran

Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you can not bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all you are beyond that pain. Khalil Gibran

They say: 'If a man knew himself, he would know all mankind.' I say: 'If a man loved mankind, he would know something of himself. Khalil Gibran

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. Khalil Gibran

If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees. Khalil Gibran

Love is a sacred mystery. To those who love, it remains forever wordless; But to those who do not love, it may be but a heartless jest. Khalil Gibran

My Soul gave me good counsel, teaching me to love what the people abhor and to show good will toward the one they hate. It showed me that Love is a property not of the lover but of the beloved. Before my Soul taught me, Love was for me a delicate thread stretched between two adjacent pegs, but now it has been transformed into a halo; its first is its last, and its last is its first. It encompasses every being, slowly expanding to embrace all that ever will be. Khalil Gibran

Marriage is like a golden ring in a chain, whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is eternity. Khalil Gibran

When you have grasped a problem clearly, face it with resolution, for that is the way of the strong. Khalil Gibran

Am I a harp that the hand of the mighty may touch me, or a flute that his breath may pass through me? A seeker of silences am I, and what treasure have I found in silences that I may dispense with confidence? Khalil Gibran

Passionate love is a quenchless thirst.... Khalil Gibran

You are good when you strive to give of yourself. Yet you are not evil when you seek gain for yourself. For when you strive for gain you are but a root that clings to the earth and sucks at her breast. Surely the fruit cannot say to the root, 'Be like me, ripe and full and ever giving of your abundance.' For to the fruit giving is a need as receiving is a need to the root. Khalil Gibran

Say not, I have found the path of the soul Say rather, I have met the soul walking upon my path. Khalil Gibran

Out of my deeper heart a bird rose and flew skywards. Higher and higher did it rise, yet larger and larger did it grow. At first it was but like a swallow, then a lark, then an eagle, then as vast as a spring cloud, and then it filled the starry heavens. Out of my heart a bird flew skywards. And it waxed larger as it flew. Yet it left not my heart. Khalil Gibran

Why dispute what we shall be, when we know not even what we are. Khalil Gibran

Our God, who art our winged self, it is thy will in us that willeth. It is thy desire in us that desireth. It is thy urge in us that would turn our nights, which are thine, into days which are thine also. We cannot ask thee for aught, for thou knowest our needs before they are born in us: Thou art our need; and in giving us more of thyself thou givest us all. Khalil Gibran

People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror. Khalil Gibran

I purified my lips with sacred fire that I might speak of love, but when I opened my mouth to speak, I found myself mute. Khalil Gibran

Beauty is that which attracts your soul, and that which loves to give and not to receive. Khalil Gibran

Your thought describes laws, courts, judges, punishments. Mine explains that when man makes a law, he either violates it or obeys it. If there is a basic law, we are all one before it. He who disdains the mean is himself mean. He who vaunts his scorn of the sinful vaunts his disdain of all humanity. Khalil Gibran

A truth is to be known always, to be uttered sometimes. Khalil Gibran

The subtlest beauties in our life are unseen and unheard. Khalil Gibran
