    I highly appreciated gibran's philosophy and thoughts of impermanence of life. There are close relationship buddhist philosophy. He was not only poet or writer. He was a great literal creater.

    As Scout Finch said Life is sometimes uglier than we think but, reading Gibran makes me believe that it is also better than I hoped for.

Best Poem of Khalil Gibran

Children

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, 'Speak to us of Children.'

And he said:

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. ...

Read the full of Children

Giving Chapter V

Then said a rich man, "Speak to us of Giving."

And he answered:

You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?
