And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

-Khalil Gibran
Khalil Gibran

It was in my heart to help a little because I was helped much.

Khalil Gibran
Love is a sacred mystery.To those who love, it remains forever wordless;But to those who do not love, it may be but a heartless jest.
Khalil Gibran

An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.

Khalil Gibran
Solitude has soft, silky hands, but with strong fingers it grasps the heart and makes it ache with sorrow.
Khalil Gibran

You are good when you are fully awake in your speech, Yet you are not evil when you sleep while your tongue staggers without purpose. And even stumbling speech may strengthen a weak tongue.

Khalil Gibran
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
Khalil Gibran

I love you, my brother, whoever you are - whether you worship in a church, kneel in your temple, or pray in your mosque. You and I are children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of the one supreme being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.

Khalil Gibran
When you reach the end of what you should know, you will be at the beginning of what you should sense.
Khalil Gibran

Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit. Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend, I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring.

Khalil Gibran
What difference is there between us, save a restless dream that follows my soul but fears to come near you?
