11 Nov / Excerpts from “Spiritual sayings of Kahlil Gibran”

I discovered  the secret of the sea in meditation of a dewdrop.

************************

The optimist sees the rose and not it thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious of the rose.

*************************

When man invents a machine, he runs it; then the machine begin to run him, and he becomes a slave of his slave.

*************************

Oratory is the cunning of the tongue over the ear, but eloquence is the joining of the heart with the soul.

*************************

Your confidence in the people and, your doubt about them, are closely related to your self-confidence and self-doubt.

**************************

Poverty hides itself in thought before it surrenders to purses.

**************************

Even the laws of Life obey Life’s laws.

**************************

God has placed in each soul an apostle to lead us upon the illuminated path. Yet many seek life from without, unaware that is within them.

***************************

The fear of hell is hell itself,  and the longing for paradise is paradise itself.

***************************

The secret of singing is found in between the vibration in the singer’s voice and the throb in the hearer’s heart.

****************************

You progress not through improving what has been done, but reaching towards what  has yet to be done.

*****************************

When I planted my pain in the field of patience it bore fruit of happiness.

*****************************

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution.

******************************

Inspiration is seeing the whole with the part of the whole in you.

******************************

The millstone may break down but the river continues its course to the sea.

******************************

Enthusiasm is a volcano on whose top never grows the grass of hesitation.

******************************

Faith is knowledge within the heart, beyond the rich of proof. 

******************************

Humanity is divinity divided without and united within.

*******************************
