Superior philosophical writings

Superb philosophical writings of an enlightened man. Poetic prose in its maximum expression. A great tool to incite deep personal exploration. Excellent teaching and inspirational tool for young readers. A religious sort of writing that applies to all religions of the world and that may be inspirational even to agnostics. The author is owed much recognition and reverence by the US literary world. His type of thinking and expression of his thoughts are similar to those of Mahatma Ghandi.

Classic look at life and relationships

A series of essays on life, love, relationships and personal philosophy. Written in a lyrical poetic style seldom seen in todays literature. Less of a "How To" manual popular today but more of a guide to meditating or contemplating life and how to reach peace with it.

Awaken

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Is a living manual for every human; not the only one! IT Awakened in me a desire to live at the highest level.
The older I get the truer and deeper the principles he elucidates so expressively resonate in my soul.

Poetry is Wisdom

This book is a must have for anyone who considers themselves philosophical. Kahlil is full of wisdom and wonder. Read the poems over and over again and you'll find something you haven't seen before.
