A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on forgiveness, hope, love, mercy, misery, motherhood, purity, sorrow, soul, strength, sympathy, and weakness

The mother is everything-she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on belief, humanity, jesus, meaning, misery, people, pity, strength, suffering, and weakness

Humanity looks upon Jesus the Nazarene as a poor-born Who suffered misery and humiliation with all of the weak. And He is pitied, for Humanity believes He was crucified painfully. . . . And all that Humanity offers to Him is crying and wailing and lamentation. For centuries Humanity has been worshiping weakness in the person of the Savior. The Nazarene was not weak! He was strong and is strong! But the people refuse to heed the true meaning of strength.
