Khalil Gibran

Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving me that which you need more than I do.
Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran

I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end.
Khalil Gibran

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
Khalil Gibran

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.
Khalil Gibran

I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.
Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran

If my survival caused another to perish, then death would be sweeter and more beloved.
Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
Khalil Gibran

Knowledge cultivates your seeds and does not sow in your seeds.
Khalil Gibran

Knowledge of the self is the mother of all knowledge. So it is incumbent on me to know my self, to know it completely, to know its minutiae, its characteristics, its subtleties, and its very atoms.
Khalil Gibran

Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
Khalil Gibran

Life without liberty is like a body without spirit.
