Almustafa, the chosen and the beloved, who was a dawn unto his own day, had waited twelve.

Nor is it a thought I leave behind me, but a heart made sweet with hunger and with thirst. YET I cannot tarry longer.

The sea that calls all things unto her calls me, and I must embark. For to stay, though the hours burn in the night, is to freeze and crystallize and be bound in a mould. Fain would I take with me all that is here.

But how shall I? A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave it wings.

Alone must it seek the ether. And alone and without his nest shall the eagle fly across the sun.

NOW when he reached the foot of the hill, he turned again towards the sea, and he saw his ship approaching the harbour, and upon her prow the mariners, the men of his own land.

AND his soul cried out to them, and he said: Sons of my ancient mother, you riders of the tides, How often have you sailed in my dreams. And now you come in my awakening, which is my deeper dream. Ready am I to go, and my eagerness with sails full set awaits the wind.

Only another breath will I breathe in this still air, only another loving look cast backward, And then I shall stand among you, a seafarer among seafarers. And you, vast sea, sleeping mother, Who alone are peace and freedom to the river and the stream, Only another winding will this stream make, only another murmur in this glade, And then I shall come to you, a boundless drop to a boundless ocean. At the age of ten, Gibran fell off a cliff, injuring his left shoulder, which seemed to remain weak for the rest of his life.

The method of healing was quite interesting: His dislocated shoulder was strapped to a cross for 40 days apprently in symbolic method of healing combining Christ's wanderings in the wilderness and his torment upon the cross.

This incident was naturally deeply ingrained into Gibran's consciousness. The Gibrans settled in the second largest Syrian community in the U.

Like many immigrant communities, they settled among people who spoke their dominant language of Lebanon. South End was filled with Arab speakers who shared Arab customs which did not include suicide bombers at that time as the majority of the community were Christians which is the less militant part of the Chrislamic faith. Gibran was blessed through exposure to the cultural side of Boston.

The Prophet Quotes

The dearth of cultural opportunities in the Turkish and Arabic societies had previously not allowed him to be exposed to the rich world of the theatre, opera and art. One must keep in mind that the more radical traditions of the Chrislamic middle east forbid the depiction of the human form. Thus from the roots of the Cedars of Lebanon, the wonderful New Thought teacher Khalil Gibran grew into a wonderful mystic who produced essays, novels, poems and art.

In Gibran had his first art exhibition in Boston.

From to he studied art in Paris with August Rodin. Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune. But I say to you that when you work you fulfil a part of earth's furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born, And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life, And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life's inmost secret.

But if you in your pain call birth an affliction and the support of the flesh a curse written upon your brow, then I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash away that which is written. You have been told also that life is darkness, and in your weariness you echo what was said by the weary. And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge, And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge, And all knowledge is vain save when there is work, And all work is empty save when there is love; And when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.

And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.When Gibran started as a student in the Quincy School in Boston in I Otto.

Proverty is a temporary fault, but excessive wealth is a lasting ailment. The light of stars that were extinguished ages ago still reaches us.
