|The Prophet. Kahlil Gibran|
I'm revisiting a Classic. "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran isn't a particularly long book (less than 100 pages), but is one that should be appreciated slowly and deliberately.
A profound and beloved text, it has been in print continuously since 1923 (100th Anniversary next year). This edition I have is from 1993. At that point, the book was already in its 124th printing.
The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.
Through the voice of the prophet AlMustafa, Kahlil Gibran touches on the many intricacies of life and the human condition. Love, marriage, children, friendship, joy and sorrow — just a sample of the wide ranging thoughts that effortlessly touch on the mind and soul.
An inspiration to millions of people, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is widely considered to be a masterpiece of spiritual poetry. This book contains all twelve original drawings Gibran created specifically for The Prophet upon its first publication.
