Faith is an oasis in the heart which can never be reached by the caravan of thinking.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

Man is like the foam of the sea, that floats upon the surface of the water. When the wind blows, it vanishes, as if it had never been. Thus are our lives blown away by Death.
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
A woman whom Providence has provided with beauty of spirit and body is a truth, at the same time both open and secret, which we can understand only by love, and touch only by virtue.

Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit. Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend, I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring.
If your knowledge teaches you not to rise above human weakness and misery and lead your fellow man on the right path, you are indeed a man of little worth and will remain such till Judgment Day.
You can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Love has no other desire but to fulfull 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.
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.
