    Now that I'm reading The Prophet again, words that I read twenty-seven years ago still ring clearly in my mind as I read them again today. It was a wonderful moment a few evenings ago to find myself reciting aloud and from memory passages that had struck me then--and now--to the very c...

    The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American poet and writer Kahlil Gibran. It was originally published in 1923 by Alfred A. Knopf. It is Gibran's best known work. The Prophet has been translated into over 100 ...

    The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen. It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay. Now, d...

    Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right. A favorite quote from the book: "Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your...

    Kahlil Gibran was one of the leading Maronite philosophers of the first half of the twentieth century. Born in Lebanon in 1883, his poetry accompanied by artwork has been translated into over twenty languages. I decided to read his opus The Prophet, which is awe inspiring poetry writte...

    I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words. Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. ...

    The richness of his poetic prose and its inherent musicality is what I take with me from Al-Mustafá, Gibran?s famous Prophet. There is also a universal spirituality that doesn?t succumb to the pressure of organized dogma that makes of this short fable a classic that might appeal...

    Of course I remember almost nothing of this book, except that it was an arduous journey through the elementary and unspecific explanation of religious doctrine that tries to be open and liberal, but is actually very conservative and full of ideology that I feel is unrewarding mostly du...

    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 * Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a truth.' Say not, ' I have found the path of the soul.' Say rather, '...

    The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is a short but invaluable book of philosophy and encouragement. It is the story of The Prophet who gives his last lectures to the habitants of the seaside town of Orphalese before leaving in a boat to shores unknown. It is filled with wisdom. Despite the re...

    It's the story of Almustafa, the Prophet, who is departing the city of Orphalese after a 12 year visit. But before he leaves, before he boards the ship that will return him to his homeland, he is asked by the residents of the city to enlighten them on a variety of subjects that deal wi...

    I'm not sure that this book lived up to the thousands of recomendations that I got to read it. It is very beautiful, many of the lines are great, but as a whole, it seems like a sort of ode to indecision. Maybe I didn't take enough time with it, but seemed to me to be so heavily focuss...

    Re-read a classic to start off the new year. As with every classic, this too turned up in a new light. With echoes of Schopenhauer, Kant and even Comte, this deep poem suddenly took new life in this reading. Now what is left is to search out which way the influence spread before flower...

    Kahlil Gibran is a name that's been revolving around the fringes of my to-read possibilities. As one of the most widely read writers in the world, how could he not? The Prophet combines faith and philosophy in a series of questions and answers on life and death and all the big topic...

    a book for anyone willing to step outside of the insitutionalized perspective of life that most of America and the world finds itself in. Every line is an intuitive and insightful proclamation of the gut feelings we all have about the way life can be lived and should be lived. I have h...

    This book is cool because it is an excellent display of how similar the world's religions truly are. When it comes down to it, they are really all the same and the differences are mainly aesthetic. However, pretty much any person who has learned about many different religions is rea...

    I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words. Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. ...

    The richness of his poetic prose and its inherent musicality is what I take with me from Al-Mustafá, Gibran?s famous Prophet. There is also a universal spirituality that doesn?t succumb to the pressure of organized dogma that makes of this short fable a classic that might appeal...

    Of course I remember almost nothing of this book, except that it was an arduous journey through the elementary and unspecific explanation of religious doctrine that tries to be open and liberal, but is actually very conservative and full of ideology that I feel is unrewarding mostly du...

    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 * Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a truth.' Say not, ' I have found the path of the soul.' Say rather, '...

    The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is a short but invaluable book of philosophy and encouragement. It is the story of The Prophet who gives his last lectures to the habitants of the seaside town of Orphalese before leaving in a boat to shores unknown. It is filled with wisdom. Despite the re...

    It's the story of Almustafa, the Prophet, who is departing the city of Orphalese after a 12 year visit. But before he leaves, before he boards the ship that will return him to his homeland, he is asked by the residents of the city to enlighten them on a variety of subjects that deal wi...

    I'm not sure that this book lived up to the thousands of recomendations that I got to read it. It is very beautiful, many of the lines are great, but as a whole, it seems like a sort of ode to indecision. Maybe I didn't take enough time with it, but seemed to me to be so heavily focuss...

    The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American artist, philosopher and writer Kahlil Gibran, originally published in 1923. The prophet, Almustafa, has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years and is about to board a ship which...

    Kahlil Gibran is a name that's been revolving around the fringes of my to-read possibilities. As one of the most widely read writers in the world, how could he not? The Prophet combines faith and philosophy in a series of questions and answers on life and death and all the big topic...

    a book for anyone willing to step outside of the insitutionalized perspective of life that most of America and the world finds itself in. Every line is an intuitive and insightful proclamation of the gut feelings we all have about the way life can be lived and should be lived. I have h...

    This is a semi-poetic collection of views on important things in life, like love, giving, crime and punishment, pain, talking, and beauty. They are told by a wise person who gives his opinions when solicited by the town on his day of departure. I like this part: And a woman who held...

    I am torn between loving this book and wanting to make fun of it. Lets have the fun first. From Jen, the prophet- On laughter: And now, why do you snicker, or sniggle, or cough aloud when a wrong happens? The mouth of the unjust is eternally in riot, it delights to bare the teet...

    I think people are making this out to be something it's not. It's bombastic nonsense. ...

    A beautiful book that is almost dreamlike in scope...the kind of dream you have when you think that you have found a piece to the puzzle of life. But Gibran truly has found more than one piece of the puzzle...a book that will be your friend for the rest of your life. ...

    The Prophet by Kalil Ghibran This book was given to me as a gift from my director in the last show that I did. I carried it with me everywhere and read it on the train, anytime I was waiting or bored. It brought me such immense comfort and inspiration. When I would read it?s pages...

    Verily I say unto you that you will find no profundity here unless, perhaps, you take up that bong or eat that mushroom. Nor will you find anything that thousands of others did not say long, long before, far more magnificently. And you may very well sob, asking yourself, "Why di...

    I feel like a real spoil sport, but The Prophet strikes me as pretentious and overwrought. Kahlil Gibran is hoping to produce a work of wisdom for the ages (apparently many accept it as such), but so much is either obvious, wrong, meaningless, or inconsequential. Gibran's maxims, deliv...

    Kahlil Gibran's magnum opus 'The Prophet' has been a refreshing read. Though I couldn't resonate with some of the chapters ( may be due to conflict between perspectives) , there were some fascinating quotes. Here are some of my favorite quotes : ?Let there be spaces in your to...

    This is a book that everyone should read at least once in his/her lifetime & when you finish it , read it all over again , because that one time won't do it justice. ...

    I admit that I was curious about this book, though it is not something that I would usually gravitate toward. I don't get down with preachy-type stuff. BUT, still I was curious, so when a friend bought me this book for Christmas, I decided to not let it languish on my shelves until I f...

    This is a semi-poetic collection of views on important things in life, like love, giving, crime and punishment, pain, talking, and beauty. They are told by a wise person who gives his opinions when solicited by the town on his day of departure. I like this part: And a woman who held...

    I am torn between loving this book and wanting to make fun of it. Lets have the fun first. From Jen, the prophet- On laughter: And now, why do you snicker, or sniggle, or cough aloud when a wrong happens? The mouth of the unjust is eternally in riot, it delights to bare the teet...

    Now that I'm reading The Prophet again, words that I read twenty-seven years ago still ring clearly in my mind as I read them again today. It was a wonderful moment a few evenings ago to find myself reciting aloud and from memory passages that had struck me then--and now--to the very c...

    The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen. It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay. Now, d...

    Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right. A favorite quote from the book: "Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your...

    I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words. Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. ...

    I feel like a real spoil sport, but The Prophet strikes me as pretentious and overwrought. Kahlil Gibran is hoping to produce a work of wisdom for the ages (apparently many accept it as such), but so much is either obvious, wrong, meaningless, or inconsequential. Gibran's maxims, deliv...

    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 * Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a truth.' Say not, ' I have found the path of the soul.' Say rather, '...

    The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is a short but invaluable book of philosophy and encouragement. It is the story of The Prophet who gives his last lectures to the habitants of the seaside town of Orphalese before leaving in a boat to shores unknown. It is filled with wisdom. Despite the re...

    It's the story of Almustafa, the Prophet, who is departing the city of Orphalese after a 12 year visit. But before he leaves, before he boards the ship that will return him to his homeland, he is asked by the residents of the city to enlighten them on a variety of subjects that deal wi...

    I'm not sure that this book lived up to the thousands of recomendations that I got to read it. It is very beautiful, many of the lines are great, but as a whole, it seems like a sort of ode to indecision. Maybe I didn't take enough time with it, but seemed to me to be so heavily focuss...

    The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American artist, philosopher and writer Kahlil Gibran, originally published in 1923. The prophet, Almustafa, has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years and is about to board a ship which...

    Kahlil Gibran is a name that's been revolving around the fringes of my to-read possibilities. As one of the most widely read writers in the world, how could he not? The Prophet combines faith and philosophy in a series of questions and answers on life and death and all the big topic...

    a book for anyone willing to step outside of the insitutionalized perspective of life that most of America and the world finds itself in. Every line is an intuitive and insightful proclamation of the gut feelings we all have about the way life can be lived and should be lived. I have h...

    This is a semi-poetic collection of views on important things in life, like love, giving, crime and punishment, pain, talking, and beauty. They are told by a wise person who gives his opinions when solicited by the town on his day of departure. I like this part: And a woman who held...

    I am torn between loving this book and wanting to make fun of it. Lets have the fun first. From Jen, the prophet- On laughter: And now, why do you snicker, or sniggle, or cough aloud when a wrong happens? The mouth of the unjust is eternally in riot, it delights to bare the teet...

    I think people are making this out to be something it's not. It's bombastic nonsense. ...

    A beautiful book that is almost dreamlike in scope...the kind of dream you have when you think that you have found a piece to the puzzle of life. But Gibran truly has found more than one piece of the puzzle...a book that will be your friend for the rest of your life. ...

    The Prophet by Kalil Ghibran This book was given to me as a gift from my director in the last show that I did. I carried it with me everywhere and read it on the train, anytime I was waiting or bored. It brought me such immense comfort and inspiration. When I would read it?s pages...

    Verily I say unto you that you will find no profundity here unless, perhaps, you take up that bong or eat that mushroom. Nor will you find anything that thousands of others did not say long, long before, far more magnificently. And you may very well sob, asking yourself, "Why di...

    I feel like a real spoil sport, but The Prophet strikes me as pretentious and overwrought. Kahlil Gibran is hoping to produce a work of wisdom for the ages (apparently many accept it as such), but so much is either obvious, wrong, meaningless, or inconsequential. Gibran's maxims, deliv...

    Kahlil Gibran's magnum opus 'The Prophet' has been a refreshing read. Though I couldn't resonate with some of the chapters ( may be due to conflict between perspectives) , there were some fascinating quotes. Here are some of my favorite quotes : ?Let there be spaces in your to...

    The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American poet and writer Kahlil Gibran. It was originally published in 1923 by Alfred A. Knopf. It is Gibran's best known work. The Prophet has been translated into over 100 ...

    The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen. It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay. Now, d...

    Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right. A favorite quote from the book: "Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your...

    I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words. Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. ...
