about book

For the past eighty years, the beautiful words of the Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran have graced everything from greeting cards and wedding invitations to inspirational wall hangings and corporate motivational literature. By one account, Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, after Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
In this beautiful gift book, we discover the essential wisdom about what it means to be alive. For Gibran life is that energy that saturates all we see and feel—as well as what we can only imagine. Here are over 100 fables, aphorisms, parables, stories, and poems. Here on display is that visionary voice of comfort, love, and tolerance.
Sections include Listening to Nature's Life, Beauty and the Song of Life, Life's Human Journey, and Life as a Journey.
Think of this as a cross of Rumi's Little Book of Life and Anne Morrrow Lindbergh's Gift of the Sea—an ideal gift book for all occasions; the gift that inspires and informs.

About author

Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer of the New York Pen League. A native of what is now Lebanon, he immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel.
He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction that includes a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose.
