A Third Treasury of Kahlil Gibran
A revelatory collection of essays and poems by a master of Eastern philosophy
In these writings, Gibran offers verses and lyric prose that possess all the grandeur of rich music. Here are the great truths and heartening joys drawn from the tears and sufferings of man. Each work sparkles with simile and symbolism, from “Seven Reprimands,”containing wise rules to live by, to “The Sayings of the Brook,”about the secrets to beauty, wealth, and virtue. These are profound exaltations of a great soul, and a trove of wisdom as relevant today as when it was first written.
