Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.

Nor shall derision prove powerful against those who listen to humanity or those who follow in the footsteps of divinity, for they shall live forever. Forever.

Generosity and pride
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

One religion
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.

Out of suffering
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
Khalil Gibran | motivational

Spaces in your togetherness
But 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.
Khalil Gibran | relationships

Sweet responsibility
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
Khalil Gibran | friendship

The sweetness of friendship
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Khalil Gibran | friendship

The threshold of your mind
The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
Khalil Gibran | education

Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.
Khalil Gibran | time

Twin brother
Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Khalil Gibran | religion

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 | children

yesterday and tomorrow
Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.
Khalil Gibran | dreams

You need more than I do
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 | generosity

Your living
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
Khalil Gibran | life
