- Khalil Gibran: “No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of you
“No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.
If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.”
-- The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

[Alex Aagaard] - Kahlil is the best poet ever :-)
[Alisa Twarzynski] - Beautiful! Where there is shadow. . .there is light.
[Teresa Kines] - The Prophet ... i had that book and several others. I haven't read Kahlil Gibran since early high school trying to find the "clear light" ... I'll have to break them out . "Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes to proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and to selfish to seek other than itself".
[Mattie Zelinski] - Someday's when my life is going well,I read Khalil and cannot understand his writings.But other days when I am in turmoil,pain or recovering from like today,it makes perfect sense.
[Paul Cobbin] - Ahmed of Kindrid spirit, peace be with you in these times for Egypt. I know that for you, those prose of Gibran are more than just your readings of a Prophet so I counter with more of the same. There are two people I have encountered in your cast, both sailors and you are one so I leave you with this from Gibran;
"And a ship without rudder may wander aimlessly among perilous isles yet sink not to the bottom."
Ahmed, you have a spirit and understanding of things that goes well beyond your years. Some day for the grace of humanity you must find your way.
[Gerardo Bentancourt Massiotti] - Ningún hombre puede revelar a usted otra cosa que lo que ya está medio dormido en el amanecer de su conocimiento.
El maestro que camina a la sombra del templo, entre sus seguidores, no da de su sabiduría, sino más bien de su fe y su amorosidad.
Si él es sabio de verdad, no oferta entrar en la casa de su sabiduría, sino que conduce a la puerta de su propia mente ".
- El Profeta de Kahlil Gibran
