I just finished reading The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran for the first time. I had heard a lot of positive feedback about the book and thought I would give it a try.
Above is my favorite selection from my first reading. The background photo is of a lantana blossom from my garden. The Prophet really is a rich little book, covering a wide variety of topics from love and marriage to pain and freedom to work and friendship. I plan to reread it many times to extract more insights.
You can read The Prophet for free on Project Gutenberg Australia.
