• A family is made up of individuals who need their space to grow along with the support and love of togetherness. Each person has their own thoughts and these can be shared with others but not imposed on them.
• Life is darkness unless there is a desire for something backed by knowledge put to use by working with love.
• The desire for freedom is a harness and you can be free when freedom isn’t your aim.
• Reason and passion both exist in you and you must enjoy both of them. Only having one of them is destructive.
• A friend is one with whom you are unafraid to say your mind. You don’t seek them to simply pass time but to live and enjoy life with them.

Author : Kahlil Gibran8 Books
Kahlil Gibran was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer.
Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of Ottoman Mount Lebanon), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero.
He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture.
Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
