Kahlil Gibran

1883 - 1931

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran

I am a tree, grown in the shade, and today I stretched my branches to tremble for a while in the daylight. I came here to tell you good-bye, my beloved, and it is my hope that our farewell will be great and awful like our love. Let our farewell be like fire that bends the gold and makes it more resplendent.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on love, letting go, freedom, loving, and relationships

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on love, loving, and desire

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.
