Kahlil Gibran
“Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful.”
Khalil Gibran, Love Letters in the Sand: The Love Poems of Khalil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran
“Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite.”
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Kahlil Gibran
“And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.”
Khalil Gibran, Love Letters in the Sand: The Love Poems of Khalil Gibran

Christopher Hitchens
“So this is where all the vapid talk about the 'soul' of the universe is actually headed. Once the hard-won principles of reason and science have been discredited, the world will not pass into the hands of credulous herbivores who keep crystals by their sides and swoon over the poems of Khalil Gibran. The 'vacuum' will be invaded instead by determined fundamentalists of every stripe who already know the truth by means of revelation and who actually seek real and serious power in the here and now. One thinks of the painstaking, cloud-dispelling labor of British scientists from Isaac Newton to Joseph Priestley to Charles Darwin to Ernest Rutherford to Alan Turing and Francis Crick, much of it built upon the shoulders of Galileo and Copernicus, only to see it casually slandered by a moral and intellectual weakling from the usurping House of Hanover. An awful embarrassment awaits the British if they do not declare for a republic based on verifiable laws and principles, both political and scientific.”
Christopher Hitchens
