About the Book

One of the most popular and profound inspirational writers of all time shares simple wisdom for living a happy and fulfilling life.

This book is a collection of Gibran's words on how to live. Here are his thoughts on what it means to live in community and solitude and what gives life meaning, along with his often prescient views on government, organized religion, wealth, and commerce. Gibran's sensibility feels contemporary. He did not recognize any ultimate authority outside of the human soul:
"It were wiser to speak less of God, whom we cannot understand and more of each other, whom we may understand."

This is the essential Gibran, with 88 selections organized into 5 sections that elucidate answers to the questions that each of us face:

Living a Wise Life
Community Wisdom
Wise Exchange
Wisdom from Solitude
Wisdom Beyond Words

This inspirational gift volume gently guides readers through life’s big issues: meaning and mortality, good and evil, and discovering an authentic spiritual path. Suitable for all gift-giving occasions, it is a book that delights, informs, and inspires.

About the Author(s)

Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) was writer, poet, and Lebanese nationalist and visual artist. His teaching fable, The Prophet, remains one of the bestselling inspirational works of all time.

He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi.

Dr. Neil Douglas-Klotz is an internationally known scholar in the fields connecting religious studies and psychology as well as a poet and musician.
