ON CHILDREN And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. And he said: Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.| You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
A brilliant man's philosophy on love, marriage, joy and sorrow, time, friendship and much more. Originally published in 1923 - translated into more than 20 languages. With 12 full page drawings by Gibran.

Annotation:
Kahlil Gibran worked on the manuscript for "The Prophet"--his second work in English after "The Madman"--for several years before it was published in October 1923. Both the author and the world consider this his masterpiece, and it has been translated into dozens of languages. "The Prophet" concerns Almustafa, "the chosen one," who, after exile on an island, addresses such universal themes as love, joy, sorrow, pain, and time. These short aphorisms, functioning as a sort of spiritual poetry, have moved countless readers over the years. With illustrations by Gibran.

Praise

NAPRA ReView
"...Gibran's works have provided countless individuals with timeless insights into love, joy, grief, ecstasy, and death, all written in that beautiful cadenced poetic style that resonates in the heart." Summer 1995
