This book is an anthology of 153 quotes from Kahlil Gibran and 50 selected facts about Kahlil Gibran. Khalil Gibran full Arabic name is Gibran Khalil Gibran. Due to a mistake at school, he was registered as "Kahlil Gibran". Khalil Gibran was born January 6, 1883 in the town of Bsharri in the north of modern-day Lebanon, then part of Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Empire. As a young man Khalil Gibran immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. As child priests visited him regularly and taught him about the Bible, as well as the Arabic and Syriac languages. The Gibrans settled in Boston's South End, at the time the second-largest Syrian-Lebanese-American communityin the United States. His mysticism is a convergence of several different influences: Christianity, Islam, Sufism, Judaism and theosophy. Gibran was influenced by the mysticism of the Sufis. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi. “Men who do not forgive women their little faults will never enjoy their great virtues.” “I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” “Desire is half of life, indifference is half of death.” “Love is all I can possess and no one can deprive me of it.” “One day you will ask me which is more important: my life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.” “All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.” “All that spirits desire, spirits attain.” “An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.” .
