The very famous Lebanese writer, Kahlil Gibran is best known as a writer, poet and a visual artist. His quotes are said to be thought provoking and life changing. This artist was also known for his abstract philosophies which bought wide changes in the minds of the people. Some of his most widely known quotes are the follows:
1) Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
What a thoughtful thing to say. In his times, this thought might not have been profound. But with changing times, one knows exactly what this quote conveys. Surely, this played a little role in changing the mindsets of the people in the society which we see now.
2) If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom?
We all have a little fire in ourselves. Here the fire being the fire of hatred, we need to let it go. We all want to become pleasant people, because we all wish the world to be pleasant with us. For it, we need to cease the fire within.
3) Love and doubt have never been on speaking terms.
How can one love as well as other have a doubt? If you love someone fully, you shouldn’t have to doubt on that person at all. This is one of the most sensible quotes which can be proved relevant in many modern day cases. And why would it not be so? This is truly spoken.
4) In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
Here, the writer quotes that there should be laughter and sharing of happiness in friendship. It should be noted that a true friend is the one who shares joys without hesitation. Sorrows are said to be shared for satisfaction to the soul, but in joys, there is no sense of ego.
5) Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
We all confuse beauty with what is the color of the face, the shape and size of one’s body. What is the worth of it? It goes away with time but what remains is the heart. And it should not be underestimated because; only the light of a true heart is what fascinates the soul in the end.
