A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on love, life, prophet, knowledge, and wisdom

If he is indeed wise, he does not bid you enter the house of wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding. The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it. And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither. For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man. And even as each one of you stands alone in God’s knowledge, so must each one of you be alone in his knowledge of God and in his understanding of the earth.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on love, life, heart, and prophet

Like sheaves of corn it gathers you unto itself.

  It threshes you to make you naked.

  It sifts you to free you from your husks.

  It grinds you to whiteness.

  It kneads you until you are pliant.

  And then it assigns you to its sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

  All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s Heart.

You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore....
but let there be spaces in your togetherness.
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky. We fell them down and turn them into paper, that we may record our emptiness.

Forget not that the earth likes to feel your bare feet
and the winds long to play with your hair.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on self-discovery and pain

Much of your pain is self-chosen. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility: For this hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen...
