Khalil Gibran quotes

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.

Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.

Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.

A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.

Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
