I’m a big fan of Mr. Gibran, his words soothed a really rough patch in my life. I still go back and read some of his passages when I need a little extra “oophf.” I’d quote him everyday, but, you’d get bored. 🙂
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. – Kahlil Gibran
I’ve said many times how much I enjoy Kahlil Gibran quotes and I was looking for a quote about the trials and tribulations of packing boxes and moving, since that’s what I’m doing, and instead I found this:
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. – Kahlil Gibran

A friend pointed me towards Kahlil Gibran years ago. He’s one of those quote-ables that I find myself constantly going back to for inspiration. Today’s his birthday, he would have been 129 today. If you’re looking for something to read, might I suggest The Prophet
Should we all confess our sins to one another we would all laugh at one another for our lack of originality. Should we all reveal our virtues we would also laugh for the same cause. – Kahlil Gibran
I really like quotes. Some of you who follow me on Twitter/Facebook may know that I occasionally post some of them. But today in my email, my Quotes of the day, all came from Kahlil Gibran, Who is one of my favorites. So I really wanted to share them with you. Please enjoy.
A man’s true wealth is the good he does in the world. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach you.
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.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.
If indeed you must be candid, be candid beautifully
All from Kahlil Gibran, 1883 – 1931
