The Prophet is an impartation of wisdom that is timeless. Khalil Gibran brings to us the other side of questions we ask every day… questions about life… love… fear… truth… honor… purpose.
“Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.”
This is just one of my favorite passages in The Prophet. It speaks of so much more than just love.
Beautifully written and thought-provoking, The Prophet begs to be taken in small measures… little bits at a time… allowing ourselves time for introspection… to look inside us at the person we are. Time for reflection on the purpose of our lives.
The Prophet is a wonderful companion to keep close to us as we experience this wonderful journey called life.
