It is not. I know, I know I should have looked into it more. Or, slightly less generously but far more honestly, a seemingly unending string of trite platitudes.

I buddy read this with my wife and her reaction was 'Oh my god I feel like I've just read a thousand refrigerator magnets!
I gave it two stars because there are actually a few nuggets of genuine wisdom hidden amongst the lazily conceived drivel. I can't give it any more than that due to my suspicion that the old saw about even broken clocks being right twice a day might apply here. If you're stoned off your tits you might find this book 'really far out, maaan'. If not, seek out an actual poetry collection, as I should have. View all 15 comments.

I read this exquisite gem of a book last night. There are only eighty-five pages of aphorisms, poems and parables but when I finished it I breathed a sigh of expectancy and felt that I had read a huge novel.
What a wonderful experience. Gibran has a depth to him that I find quite unsurpassed. I felt as though his words had entered my very soul. Some examples: If your heart is a volcano how shall you expect flowers to bloom in your hands? He who can put his finger upon that which divides good from ev I read this exquisite gem of a book last night.
He who can put his finger upon that which divides good from evil is he who can touch the very hem of the garment of God. I would be the least among men with dreams and the desire to fulfill them, rather than the greatest with no dreams and no desires. I must read more of his works. View all 6 comments. Jul 26, Shahad takleef rated it it was amazing. But the sea and the shore will remain Forever. This book is more like a book of quotation, where Gibran writes on many subjects. I love the writing style , the way it magically unlocks one's soul , he throws life around his words , there's a sense of an eternal beauty into them.
Now I know that I am the sphere, and all life in rhythmic fragments moves within me. They say to me in their awakening, "You and the world you live in are but a grain of sand upon the infinite shore of an infinite sea. If I stay here, there is a going in my staying; and if I go there is a staying in my going. Only love and death will change all things.
How shall your hand be raised in blessing if it is filled with gold? Shelves: paradigm-shifters-sacred , personal-growth. If I were a little younger, a little more naive, a little less weighed down by my worldly wisdom which isn't much , I would have caught hold of every person I care about and read the aphorisms aloud.
I would have made them taste the beauty and the truth the musings are dipped in. I would have beseech-ed them to open their hearts, to let the powerful words seep into their souls.
I would have asked them to read a quote, one at a time, and wonder like a child while summoning all their life's exper If I were a little younger, a little more naive, a little less weighed down by my worldly wisdom which isn't much , I would have caught hold of every person I care about and read the aphorisms aloud. I would have asked them to read a quote, one at a time, and wonder like a child while summoning all their life's experience.
I would have enthused them with my excitement, with my joy, my delight in discovering each new phrase and how truly it reflects my own understanding. That there has been a Khalil Gibran, the writer of this book, such books, that he has been so popular across nations and religions and creeds, that his timeless words still vibrate with the sanctity he once wrote them with in the reader's mind, is a reason enough to be hopeful about this world.
But I resisted, almost. Take away the few Goodreads updates, the Facebook status updates, the one or two random texts and emails, and I almost behaved. It is inappropriate for a well-read, reasonable man to show such enthusiasm for what but aphorisms. They did not beat me.
My mother remarked the next day that I read to them only from books about death or people that are dying and that they weren't that old yet; so I stopped. I bought 'The Monk who sold his Ferrari' for my uncle who has spent his entire life at a wholesale shop.
But he returned it unread. To the highly judgmental and racist father of a friend who, at least in my opinion, was in Ayan Rand cult, I gave Michael Shermer's 'Why people believe weird things' and Jared Diamond's 'Gun, Germs and Steel'.
We are yet to see each other in eyes. My best friend, who is "bored with life", has dumped 'The Power of Now' in a trunk and says he won't mind selling it. It was a birthday present from me. In the Marketing division of the Headhunting firm I work I am not doing too well. It's delicious, has medicinal benefits and is supposed to be taken in small proportions.
Some random morsels: "Yestereve I saw philosophers in the market-place, carrying their heads in baskets, and crying aloud, "Wisdom! Wisdom for sale! They must needs sell their heads to feed their hearts" "If winter should say, "Spring is in my heart," who would believe winter? My son fell in it. Gibran's ability to encapsulate a profound concept in two or three lines is incredible. There's so much to think about on every page of this small book that it will require multiple readings to really appreciate what he's saying.
That's not to say that he's obscure, because he's certainly not, he's mostly cuttingly precise and clear.
Sand and foam
As his mother worked as a seamstress, he was enrolled at a school in Boston , where his creative abilities were quickly noticed by a teacher who presented him to photographer and publisher F. Holland Day. Returning to Boston upon his youngest sister's death in , he lost his older half-brother and his mother the following year, seemingly relying afterwards on his remaining sister's income from her work at a dressmaker's shop for some time. In , Gibran's drawings were displayed for the first time at Day's studio in Boston, and his first book in Arabic was published in in New York City. With the financial help of a newly met benefactress, Mary Haskell , Gibran studied art in Paris from to

But the sea and the shore will remain Forever. Then I opened it and lo, the mist was a worm. And I closed and opened my hand again, and behold there was a bird. And again I closed and opened my hand, and in its hollow stood a man with a sad face, turned upward. And again I closed my hand, and when I opened it there was naught but mist.

Интуиция подсказывала ей спасаться бегством, но у нее не было пароля от двери лифта. Сердце говорило ей, что она должна помочь Стратмору, но. Повернувшись в полном отчаянии, она ожидала услышать шум смертельной борьбы на полу, но все было тихо. Все вдруг сразу же смолкло: как если бы Хейл, сбив коммандера с ног, снова растворился в темноте. Сьюзан ждала, вглядываясь во тьму и надеясь, что Стратмор если и пострадал, то не сильно. После паузы, показавшейся ей вечностью, она прошептала: - Коммандер.
Директор! - взорвался Джабба. - Когда эти стены рухнут, вся планета получит высший уровень допуска к нашим секретам. Высший уровень. К отчетам о секретных операциях. К зарубежной агентурной сети. Им станут известны имена и местонахождение всех лиц, проходящих по федеральной программе защиты свидетелей, коды запуска межконтинентальных ракет. Мы должны немедленно вырубить электроснабжение.
Да, да, прямо. К тому же у нас вышел из строя генератор. Я требую направить сюда всю энергию из внешних источников. Все системы должны заработать через пять минут. Грег Хейл убил одного из младших сотрудников лаборатории систем безопасности и взял в заложники моего старшего криптографа.
Беккер кивнул. - Ты же сказала, что не колешься. Девушка засмеялась: - Это же чудо-маркер. Я чуть кожу не содрала, пытаясь его стереть.
Выходила только абракадабра. Похоже, не один Танкадо умел создавать абсолютно стойкие шифры. Ее мысли прервал шипящий звук открываемой пневматической двери. В Третий узел заглянул Стратмор. - Какие-нибудь новости, Сьюзан? - спросил Стратмор и тут же замолчал, увидав Грега Хейла.
Он отстаивал перед директором свои идеи со спокойствием невозмутимого боксера-профессионала. Даже президент Соединенных Штатов не решался бросать вызов Фонтейну, что не раз позволял себе Стратмор. Для этого нужен был политический иммунитет - или, как в случае Стратмора, политическая индифферентность.
