Kahlil Gibran Love and Life Quotes

Post  Vee on Sat Sep 15, 2012 3:10 am

“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.”

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

“Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.”

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”

“It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations”.

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”

“Love is trembling happiness.”

“Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.”

“... joy and sorrow are inseparable. . . together they come and when one sits alone with you . . . remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.”

“To be able to look back upon ones life in satisfaction, is to live twice”

“To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.”

“The reality of the other person lies not in what he reveals to you, but what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does not say.”

“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.”

“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one”

“Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls”

“Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.”

“If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him you will always remember”

“For what is it to die, But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?”

“Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful end of a human being.”

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”

“What difference is there between us, save a restless dream that follows my soul but fears to come near you?”

“Love and doubt have never been on speaking terms.”

“Seven times have I despised my soul:
The first time when I saw her being meek that she might attain height.
The second time when I saw her limping before the crippled.
The third time when she was given to choose between the hard and the easy, and she chose the easy.
The fourth time when she committed a wrong, and comforted herself that others also commit wrong.
The fifth time when she forbore for weakness, and attributed her patience to strength.
The sixth time when she despised the ugliness of a face, and knew not that it was one of her own masks.
And the seventh time when she sang a song of praise, and deemed it a virtue.”

'But should my voice fade in your ears, and my love vanish in your memory, then I will come again,
And with a richer heart and lips more yielding to the spirit will I speak...
And though death may hide me... yet again will I seek your understanding.
And not in vain will I seek'.

'When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams
as the north wind lays waste the garden'.

"Come close to me, oh beloved of my soul; the
Fire is cooling and fleeing under the ashes.

Embrace me, for I fear loneliness; the lamp is
Dim, and the wine which we pressed is closing
Our eyes. Let us look upon each other before
They are shut.

Find me with your arms and embrace me; let
Slumber then embrace our souls as one.
Kiss me, my beloved, for Winter has stolen
All but our moving lips.

You are close by me, My Forever.
How deep and wide will be the ocean of Slumber,
And how recent was the dawn"!

'The Great God separated a soul from His own essence and fashioned beauty within her.
He gave her the mildness of the evening breezes, the fragrance of wildflowers, the gentleness of moonlight.
He gave her a cup of happiness and said, 'Drink of it only if you forget the past and are heedless of the future.'
He gave her a cup of sorrow and said, 'Drink of it and apprehend the essence of life's joy.'
He scattered within her love that will desert her at the first sigh of fulfillment and a sweetness that will desert her at the first world of pride.
From heave He sent down knowledge upon her to guide her on the paths of truth.
Deep within her He placed discernment to see what cannot be seen.
In her He created a yearning that flows with dreams and runs with spirits.
He clothed her with a robe of longing, woven by angels from rainbow threads'. ~ ♥

"The strong shore is my beloved
And I am his sweetheart.

I quench his thirst and submerge his
Heart; he softens my voice and subdues
My temper

At dawn I recite the rules of love upon
His ears, and he embraces me longingly.

As the tide comes we caress each other,
When it withdraws, I drop to his feet in
Prayer".~ ♥

“When you were a wandering desire in the mist, I too was there, a wandering desire. Then we sought one another, and out of our eagerness dreams were born. And dreams were time limitless, and dreams were space without measure.”

'But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully'.

"When there’s someone, one someone,
who makes your days brighter,
makes your joys greater,
makes your heart lighter..
Someone, one someone,
you want to share with,
do everything with,
go everywhere with..
Someone, one someone
you want to live for
You have something called LOVE".

“Where are you now, my other self? Are you awake in the silence of the night? Let the clean breeze convey to you my heart’s every beat and affection. Are you fondling my face in your memory? That image Is no longer my own, for sorrow has dropped his shadow on my happy countenance of the past.”

"We were both silent, each waiting for the other to speak, but speech is not the only means of understanding between two souls. It is not the syllables that come from the lips and tongues that bring hearts together".
