Summary

Summary

Kahlil Gibran’s aphorisms, stories, and poetry on a theme remain among some of those best known to Western readers. His views, however, extend beyond the most-quoted “greeting card” sayings to a wide realm of human emotions and relationships—passion, desire, idealized love, justice, friendship, and the challenges of dealing with strangers, neighbors, and enemies. This little book captures love and life in all of their complexities and nuances.

This little volume includes over ninety selections from Gibran’s writings and is divided into four sections:

  1. Love’s Initiation
  2. The Veils of Love
  3. All of Our Relationships
  4. A Love Beyond

This book, ideal for all gift-giving occasions, is informative, illuminating, and inspirational.

Whom Do We Love?
When I stood, a clear mirror before you,
you gazed into me and saw your image.
Then you said, “I love you.”
But in truth you loved yourself in me.
Love is the veil between lover and lover

Author Bio: Kahlil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), an artist, poet, and writer, was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States. He is known in the English-speaking world primarily for The Prophet, a book of twenty-six poetic essays published in 1923 which achieved cult status. He remains one of the world’s bestselling poets, second only to Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. To many he is a genius whose philosophical and prophetic style convey important messages about life and humanity in a simple, yet beautifully eloquent manner, which was described by Library Journal as "poetic prose, half New Testament, and half Walt Whitman.”
