Gibran Khalil Gibran: 1883-1931

Kahlil Gibran
Will my heart become a tree laden heavily with fruit that I can pick and give to others?

Generosity is giving more than you can.

Khalil Gibran

Joy and Sorrow

Kahlil Gibran
"The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain".

"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight".


Kahlil Gibran
"Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.

But you are life and you are the veil.

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

But you are eternity and you are the mirror."


Kahlil Gibran
"You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.

You often say, "I would give, but only to the deserving."
The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.
They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

Surely he who is worthy to receive his days and his nights is worthy of all else from you.

And he who has deserved to drink from the ocean of life deserves to fill his cup from your little stream.


Kahlil Gibran
"Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief from his occupations?

Your daily life is your temple and your religion.

Whenever you enter into it take with you your all".


Kahlil Gibran
"Pleasure is a freedom song,

But it is not freedom.

It is the blossoming of your desires,

But it is not their fruit.

It is a depth calling unto a height,

But it is not the deep nor the high.

It is the caged taking wing,

But it is not space encompassed.

And your body is the harp of your soul,

And it is yours to bring forth sweet music from it or confused sounds."


Kahlil Gibran
And what is it to work with love?

It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.

It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.

It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit.

It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit,

Work is love made visible.
