Inspired largely by the beauty and timelessness of nature, The Prophet, arrayed as twentysix prose poetry essays, speaks of love and marriage, joy and sorrow, reason and passion, beauty and death, and conveys the yearning for a Unity of Being that can only be achieved through love. These qualities made The Prophet the iconic book of the 1960s counter-culture, which embraced love and spirituality. Illustrated with his own enchanting and mystical drawings, The Prophet is a masterpiece, the most famous work of religious fiction of the Twentieth Century, and a wonderful companion for anybody embarking on their own spiritual journey.Read Less
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Is a living manual for every human; not the only one! IT Awakened in me a desire to live at the highest level.
The older I get the truer and deeper the principles he elucidates so expressively resonate in my soul.

Poetry is Wisdom
This book is a must have for anyone who considers themselves philosophical. Kahlil is full of wisdom and wonder. Read the poems over and over again and you'll find something you haven't seen before.

Gibran at his finest
This book was recommended to me. It is a book that should be kept and reflected on every couple of years. It reveals the human psychy in all it's stages and can be used for personal and professional insight by everyone. It is an easy read, it is a short read, but be sure to ponder all its words; as they will stay with you long after you finish reading it. Whether you are from the 1920's when it was written or 2045, the message is the same. Enjoy reading it, and dont forget to recommend it!!
