A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on brothers, enemies, errors, lies, repentance, tyranny, and wisdom

My brothers, seek counsel of one another, for therein lies the way out of error and futile repentance. The wisdom of the many is your shield against tyranny. For when we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on age, aged, elderly, wisdom, and experience

Seek ye counsel of the aged, for their eyes have looked on the faces of the years and their ears have hearkened to the voices of Life.  Even of their counsel is displeasing to you, pay heed to them.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on church, darkness, driving, emptiness, faith, falsehood, glory, gold, hypocrisy, jesus, life, praise, and sacred

Oh Jesus, they have built these churches for the sake of their own glory, and embellished them with silk and melted gold. . . . They left the bodies of Thy chosen poor wrapped in tattered raiment in the cold night. . . . They filled the sky with the smoke of burning candles and incense and left the bodies of Thy faithful worshipers empty of bread. . . . They raised their voices with hymns of praise, but deafened themselves to the cry and moan of the widows and orphans. Come again, Oh Living Jesus, and drive the vendors of Thy faith from Thy sacred temple, for they have turned it into a dark cave where vipers of hypocrisy and falsehood crawl and abound.
