A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on contentment, earth, fortune, heart, hope, laughter, life, and tears

I would not exchange the laughter of my heart for the fortunes of the multitudes; nor would I be content with converting my tears, invited by my agonized self, into calm. It is my fervent hope that my whole life on this earth will ever be tears and laughter.
