    It was such a great discovery for me when 2 or 3 years before I suddenly found this greatest writers work..... All my life I have spent in books, read this work, that work... But Khalil Gibran, s works gave me wings to fly.... You read him and you find yourself... You read him and you understand that really GOD blessed this world, if there is ones, as Khalil Gibran... Who MIT feet so deep, whose words can make you a real part of this world... Greatest poet, greatest humanist, greatest man....

    Khalil Gibran was a very serious seeker of Truth. He reaped what he sowed in Truth through inspiration and wisdom. He is quoted heavily in a book at truthcontest.com called The Present, as well as in the 'Insights' section. I highly suggest you all visit that website. There is much to learn

Best Poem of Khalil Gibran

On Pain

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses
your understanding.

Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its
heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the
daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem
less wondrous than your joy;

And you would accept the seasons of your heart,
even as you have always accepted the seasons that
pass over your fields.

And you would watch with serenity through the
winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen. ...

Freedom Xiv

And an orator said, "Speak to us of Freedom."

And he answered:

At the city gate and by your fireside I have seen you prostrate yourself and worship your own freedom,

Even as slaves humble themselves before a tyrant and praise him though he slays them.

Ay, in the grove of the temple and in the shadow of the citadel I have seen the freest among you wear their freedom as a yoke and a handcuff.
