The Prophet

Love gives naught but itself

Love gives naught but itself and takes
naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love . . .
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.

~ from THE PROPHET by Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet
By Kahlil Gibran

You pray in your distress and in your need

You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.

~ from THE PROPHET by Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet
By Kahlil Gibran

The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness

Yet 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. And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.
