THE PROPHET

Post by cozmicray » Tue Feb 13, 2007 2:55 pm

Thought I'd share with everyone my all time favourite book, it's by an author called Kahlil Gibran and called The Prophet. I was given this book as a gift about 15 years ago and I have never stopped reading it. Let me clarify, when I finish the book which is only 114 pages long I start at the beginning again. It has some of the most simple but beautiful words you could ever wish to read, this man was well before his time, an indeed a prophet in his own rights. I have found a link to a web site that has this book available to read on line ( page gone )
have a look and see what you think I'm sure you will love it like me.

Hi Cozmicray...

Yeah ive heard of him before, some years ago...hes Lebanese isnt he... He follows the Bahai faith i think, im not sure... I havent read his works though, but i read some of that book you provided, oh isnt it beautiful.... I like the chapter about Love... I cant make out what prophet he is refering to.. Jesus, Mohamed or all prophets in general... I shall read somemore, i found this link to some of his other books, he has wrote a book about Jesus there somewhere...

Thanks for sharing...

With love

Hello Cosmic Ray!
Yeah, I have that book and it is one of my favorites also!

Sarah,
Love is a good one, I also like the chapters on Marriage and Children.

Warm Hugs to Both of You!

Yeah dear Cosmic, Kahlil Gibran is one of my favorites, maybe my favorite. I was blessed to read his beautiful words many years ago at a time in my life when it made definate changes for me. I love "A Tear and a Smile"...

Thanks, think I'll find it and read it again!

Much peace..

Dear Cosmic,

He's still writing. Heres one from the otherside:

Kahlil Gibran: Poetry.

The Prophet is probably one of my all time favorite books. The passage that has always "spoken" to me is the one about children. I just love the image of children as living arrows sent forth. This book is just amazing.

I actually JUST (as in yesterday) went to a used book store and came across one of his other books. It is Spirits Rebellious. I'm looking forward to reading it. I'll let you know what I think. :study:
