I don't know how I've lived 21 years without this book. It's absurdly beautiful and will move you beyond words. I first borrowed this from my library, but before I even got a page through I knew I'd have to buy a copy of my own to reread and study. It's definitely one of my favorite books. I'm honestly thinking about buying several copies to give to my friends and family so they have no excuse not to read it, it's that good. This should be required reading for everyone on Earth. If you're wondering whether or not to read it, I'll make a decision for you: DO IT. You won't regret it.

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.”

This quotation from the classic book by Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, illustrates why these writings have been popular for so long. This reviewer remembers getting his first copy of the book in Boston during the early 1950's, when it was widely circulated among college students at the time, as well as young adults who were starting out in that decade. It had a fresh take on the institutions of life, and offered that generation a sense of breaking away from convention without being particularly radical. It was a way to be non-conforming, without departing too far from traditional values. This may explain why it surged in popularity in the 1960s, when the generation coming of age at that time had a new kind of permission to break away, yet have a sense of a valid value system at the same time. To read and talk about The Prophet became a quite "cool" thing to do. Gibran's work had been around for a long time, but it is the type of literature that has a way of being rediscovered as each new generation comes along. This is at least partially why it retains its popularity over so many years.

I lost my original copy forty or so years ago. You can read it a thousand times and you'll learn something every time you read it. I plan to be buried with the copy I just bought. There is more wisdom within it's pages and if you live by the lessons taught there you're sure to live a much richer life. Try reading it with your soul mate.

Timeless poetic stories That bring out the best. This was recommended to me by a friendly waitress on evening. Since then we've been recommending books to each other every time I see her. This recommendation was a unexpected treat. Take the time to read and enjoy its warmth! You'll be recommending this to strangers just as she did to me, making friends in the process. I guess that's the kind of magic this book holds. Happy Reading!!!

My lifetime favorite. I was introduced to this book in the '70s and I have never turned it down since then. I've kept on going back again and again to its beautiful and poetic messages. This book is so timeless and so inspiring that I couldn't keep quoting and sharing Kahlil's words with my kids, relatives, coworkers and friends. This is a book that I intend to introduce even to my grandchildren someday.

I purchased this book as a replacement to the one I had given away. This is one of my all-time favorite books and truly a classic. No matter what religion or belief you have, this book will apply and you will relate to it. This is one to read over and over during the course of your lifetime and to share with loved ones, and also
with people that you just think may need to read it.
This is one of my favorite books. I highly recommend if you’re considering purchasing this book or if you heard about it go ahead and get your copy. I first purchased mine years ago and recently purchased a copy for my daughter. This book has great teachings and is written beautifully, poetically and with true wisdom.
