For the past eighty years, the beautiful words of the Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran have graced everything from greeting cards and wedding invitations to inspirational wall hangings and corporate motivational literature. By one account, Gibran is the third bestselling poet of all time, after Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.

In this beautiful gift book, we discover the essential wisdom about what it means to be alive. For Gibran life is the energy that saturates all we see and feel—as well as what we can only imagine. Here are over 100 fables, aphorisms, parables, stories, and poems from the author of The Prophet.

Here on display is that visionary voice of comfort, love, and tolerance.

Listing to Nature’s Life
Taking time to listen to the natural world reveals a new dimension of being
human. It is as if all of nature were already within us, reminding us of our
connection to the one life we share.

Solitude
Solitude is a silent storm
that breaks down all our dead branches.
Yet it sends our living roots deeper
into the living heart of the living earth.

Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883–April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, and poet. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction that includes a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose.
