I really don't understand the moral of many/most of Gibran's stories and parables, but that doesn't make them any less interesting. And I find the words beautiful and soothing. I can't explain it, I just enjoy it. Read full review

A few really good parables amongst a bunch of mediocre ones at best. I'd compare it to Aesop's Fables if Aesop had included all of his crappy ideas along with his good ones. Read full review
