Khalil Gibran Quotes

One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.

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. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward, nor tarries with yesterday.

How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking you for anything, but to be okay.

God made the world with a heart full of love,
Then He looked down from Heaven above,
And saw that we all need a helping hand,
Someone to share with, who’ll understand.
He made special people to see us through
The glad times and the sad times, too;
A person on whom we can always depend,
Someone we can call a friend.
God made friends so we’ll carry a part
Of His perfect love in all our hearts.

Keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life.

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them into the sea,
But all these things I’m finding
Are impossible for me.
I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me be what I know best,
A friend that is always there.

Tortoises can tell you more about the road than hares.

A traveller I am, and a navigator, and everyday I discover a new region within my soul.

I do not want you to hear that I LOVE you, but I want you to feel it without me having to say.

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.

To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.

You may forget with whom you laughed, but you will never forget with whom you wept.

Our worst fault is our preoccupation with the faults of others.

Jesus was not sent here to teach the people to build magnificent churches and temples amidst the cold wretched huts and dismal hovels. He came to make the human heart a temple, and the soul an altar, and the mind a priest.

Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms without the aid of the seasons

All things in this vast universe exist in you, with you, and for you.

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were.
