Khalil Gibran





  George Russell wrote about
  Khalil Gibran and his book "The Prophet" :

" I do not think that East has spoken
with so beautiful a voice since the
"Gitanjali" of Rabindranath Tagore as
in The Prophet of Kahlil Gibran, who
is artist as well as poet. I have not seen
for years a book more beautiful in its
thought, and when reading it I
understand better than ever before
what Sokrates meant in the "Banquet"
when he spoke of the beauty of thought
which exercises a deeper enchantment
than the beauty of form . . . I could
quote from every page, and from every
page I could find some beautiful and
liberating thought "
