Kahlil Gibran's aphorisms, stories, and poetry on a theme remain among some of those best known to Western readers. His views, however, extend beyond the most-quoted "greeting card" sayings to a wide realm of human emotions and relationships - passion, desire, idealized love, justice, friendship, and the challenges of dealing with strangers, neighbors, and enemies. This little book captures love and life in all of their complexities and nuances.

This little volume includes over 90 selections from Gibran's writings and is divided into four sections:

  1. Love's Initiation
  2. The Veils of Love
  3. All of Our Relationships
  4. A Love Beyond

This book, ideal for all gift-giving occasions, is informative, illuminating, and inspirational.

Whom Do We Love?
When I stood, a clear mirror before you,
you gazed into me and saw your image.
Then you said, "I love you."
But in truth you loved yourself in me.
Love is the veil between lover and lover.



Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883 - April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer of the New York Pen League. A native of what is now Lebanon, he immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet.
