A Day With Kahlil Gibran


Thought For Today: Quotes from Kahlil Gibran.

“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."

"Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with
you your all."

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

" The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply."

"Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself."

“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.”

"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”

" 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.”

Have a sunny day. Fine Art and Jewelry.

What a fantastic post. I love this quote:

"Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all."

I was just telling someone the other day that my church and my religion was my daily life, learning to love and be fully alive and aware. This is just GREAT!!

Thank you for sharing these quotes.
