I knew Kahlil Gibran the lebanesse writer/poet whom his real name was Gibran Kahlil Gibran and his works were compared to Dante's, Blake's and Rodin's and that his works called the prophet is one of the most highly regarded poems of modern time.
Long time ago, My former boyfriend used to quote his poems to impress me. But at that time I didn't want to buy any of his books to read more about him. I'm not a poetic person, I was struggling to intrepet Chairil Anwar back when I was in school and eve

O Profeta é uma das obras de maior referência que a maioria dos leitores e estudiosos gibranianos elegem, de todos os escritos que Kahlil Gibran (1899-1931) escreveu.

I lost interest after the first four or five poems. I just skimmed through the latter part of the book to find verses which would resonate with my state of mind. It was not what I had expected it to be like.

This book is like a bible to me. It sits in my night table and I re-read it every once in a while. I was introduced to "The Prophet" and Khalil Gibran's writings when I was 19 yrs old. It's a cool, soothing drink for my soul.

One thing: I want the "Marriage" part to be recited at my city hall wedding. Wise words, really wise words written beautifully.

I'll have to re- read. To deep to understand just reading it once. Hence no rating. I admire khalil for his insight and eloquence despite his youth while writing this.
