    1. Now that I'm reading The Prophet again, words that I read twenty-seven years ago still ring clearly in my mind as I read them again today. It was a wonderful moment a few evenings ago to find myself reciting aloud and from memory passages that had struck me then--and now--to the very core. Kahlil Gibran spent a couple of years revising The Prophet. Since it is a short book, the concepts come across as distilled. The influences of his native Lebanon as well as his love for scripture, come through [...]

    2. أعتقد أنها ستكون أروع شئ قرأته وسأقرأه عن الأنسانية والحب والعطاء والحكمة كتاب رائع يستحق الاقتناء وقرائته أكثر من مرة أبدع ثروت أباظه في ترجمته ويكأنه علي لسان عربي وليس بمترجم أشد المقطوعات أثارت أعجابيفي المأكل والمشرب وحين تنحر ذبيحتك ناجها في سريرتك قائلا:"إن الفدرة ا [...]

    4. The Prophet made me feel profoundly spiritual when I was nineteen. It was a great way to experience spirituality and romance as a teenager, but as I got older, its lusty descriptions of the true meaning of love, marriage, and life just seem like pretty, but shallow, wordplay.Now, don't write to me and prove me wrong on this, because I like the idea very much. I believe that Khalil Gibran was quite the player. The Prophet has a seductive tone that avoids making any concrete statements, which is t [...]

    5. Despite your religious views, be they absent or strong, Gibran has given us a work of beauty that proves, to me at least, that faith is not necessary to be good and right.A favorite quote from the book:"Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music."Lee

    6. ليس هناك فرصة أفضل لإعادة كتابة هذه المراجعة من هذه الأيام حيث يثور الجميع من حولي على اكليشيه "خليك زي حماده", و "be like Bill"فنبي جبران, مثل مدير أحد تلك الصفحات, يقوم بوضع أنماط محددة لحياتنا, عن طريق نصائح مباشرة مبتذلة. ومُقتي لهذا الشكل من النصائح مهما كان محتواها ومهما كان قائ [...]

    7. Kahlil Gibran was one of the leading Maronite philosophers of the first half of the twentieth century. Born in Lebanon in 1883, his poetry accompanied by artwork has been translated into over twenty languages. I decided to read his opus The Prophet, which is awe inspiring poetry written in novella form. A classic that often surfaces on classics groups, The Prophet is a worthy edition to one's classics collection. Gibran's philosopher Al-Mustafa has traveled by boat to visit the Orphalese people [...]

    9. في منتصف التسعينات تقريبا تحول عمى الى السلفية و هجر مكتبته العامرة بمختلف الكتب بأن تركها في بيت جدى بعد زواجه و انتقاله لشقته الجديدة. لم أكن أفهم وقتها ما السلفية و ما علاقتها بهجر المكتبة التي كان يلتصق بها و كأنه جنين في بطن أمه واضعا فراشه و مكتبه و كل حياته فيها منذ أن و [...]

    10. I don't know if I can write this review. I really don't. It makes me feel extremely vulnerable, to contemplate putting so much of my heart out on view for people on the internet to see. I also don't know if I have the words.Reading this book was both devastating and awe-inspiring. I was moved beyond words, particularly when I started reading it, started to let the words wash over me, when I realized how familiar they were, not the words, but the meanings behind them. It felt like something I'd b [...]

    11. The richness of his poetic prose and its inherent musicality is what I take with me from Al-Mustafá, Gibran’s famous Prophet. There is also a universal spirituality that doesn’t succumb to the pressure of organized dogma that makes of this short fable a classic that might appeal to any reader regardless of his present, absent or muddled religious beliefs.The roundness of the last chapter reminds me of the serene wisdom of the ancient aphorisms in The Tao Te Ching because it allows multiple [...]

    12. Of course I remember almost nothing of this book, except that it was an arduous journey through the elementary and unspecific explanation of religious doctrine that tries to be open and liberal, but is actually very conservative and full of ideology that I feel is unrewarding mostly due to the difficulty in actual application. If anyone reads this, although I see no reason why they would, listen to my words. The truth, however you define it, however you need it, is simple. When you see it you kn [...]

    13. I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your ‎temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one ‎religion, and it is the spirit*Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, 'I have found a ‎truth.' Say not, ' I have found the path of the soul.' Say ‎rather, 'I have met the soul walking upon my path.' For the ‎soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, ‎neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a ‎lotus of countless petals*Yo [...]

    14. The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is a short but invaluable book of philosophy and encouragement. It is the story of The Prophet who gives his last lectures to the habitants of the seaside town of Orphalese before leaving in a boat to shores unknown. It is filled with wisdom. Despite the religious implication of the title, the philosophy here is more that of Spinoza. "You will be free not when your days are without worry and your nights are without desire of pain. You will be free when your life is s [...]

    15. It's the story of Almustafa, the Prophet, who is departing the city of Orphalese after a 12 year visit. But before he leaves, before he boards the ship that will return him to his homeland, he is asked by the residents of the city to enlighten them on a variety of subjects that deal with life and life's issues. You will find wisdom, compassion, love, friendship, teaching, and maybe best of all, beauty. This book is a virtual roadmap for how to live your life to complete fulfillment.

    16. I'm not sure that this book lived up to the thousands of recomendations that I got to read it. It is very beautiful, many of the lines are great, but as a whole, it seems like a sort of ode to indecision. Maybe I didn't take enough time with it, but seemed to me to be so heavily focussed on balance and contradictions that it didn't make any extreme proclamations. Maybe balance is more real than that which is self-glorifying, but I just wasn't as moved as I wanted to be. Maybe at a different time [...]

    17. يلقِّب البعض هذا الكتاب بإنجيل جبران. أعتقد أن هذا هو الوصف الأنسب لكتاب اقتبس كاتبه حروفه من نور سماوي. ترجمة ثروت عكاشة جعلت النص العربي يبدو كأنه هو النص الأصلي الذي كُتب به الكتاب.أحمد الديب2008

    18. جبران !! إن كان لنا أن نلتقي في غسق الذكرى ثانية ً ، فسوف نتحدث معاً مرةً أخرى ، وسوف تغنّون لي أُغنية أعمق وإذا قُيض لأيدينا أن تلتقي في حُلُمٍ آخر ، فسوف نُشيّدُ بُرجاً آخرَ في السماء . أما الآن فقد هجرنا النومُ ، وانتهى حُلمنا ، وما من فجر . الظهيرة جاءت وتحوّلت يقظتنا في انتص [...]

    19. Re-read a classic to start off the new year. As with every classic, this too turned up in a new light. With echoes of Schopenhauer, Kant and even Comte, this deep poem suddenly took new life in this reading. Now what is left is to search out which way the influence spread before flowering in this expression - east to west, the other way, or is it an early amalgamation of all philosophy like all truly great poems are.

    20. -- مصنّفٌ هذا الكتاب بأنّه أشهر و أروع ما كتب جبران . -- قال عنه صاحبه " إنّه ديانتي و أقدسُ قدسيّات حياتي " -- أٌصدرَ بالإنجليزيّة عام 1923 م .-- عرّبه الأرشمندريت أنطونيوس بشير .-- استمرّ جبران في التعبير عن وحدة الوجود بصوره الأكثر من رائعة .-- زيارتي الثالثة عشر لجبران .--" إنّ جميع كت [...]

    21. The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American artist, philosopher and writer Kahlil Gibran, originally published in 1923. The prophet, Almustafa, has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years and is about to board a ship which will carry him home. "Long were the days of pain I have spent within its walls, and long were the nights of aloneness; and who can depart from his pain and his aloneness without regret?"He is stopped by a group of peo [...]

    22. 54 sayfalık dev kitap. El Mustafa yıllardır beklediği gemiye binip yaşadığı yerden uzaklaşacakken halk ona merak ettiklerini sorup El Mustafa'dan hakikati isterler. Bunun üzerine sorulan her soruya karşılık öğütler alırlar. Aşk, acı, özgürlük, suç ve ceza, dostluk, ölüm ve daha bir çok konu. Dostluk ile suç ve ceza kısmını ayrı bir sevdim ben. Altını çizmek istemediğim tek bir yer bile olmadı desem yeridir. Ama en önemlisi yazarı sevdim. Ermiş ara ara açı [...]

    23. هناك رسائل إنسانية سامية , رسائل خطّها بشر من نوع خاص , رسائل قد تصل لدرجة ما من القداسة , من حيث سمو مكانتها وعلوها .فقد ناطحت السحاب من حيث عظمة الإبداع , ولا يمكنك عندما تفرغ من قرائتها إلا الاستسلام لبالغ أثرها من براعة لفظ و روعة وصف و دقة تعبير .نواجه هنا نص في غاية الجمال , ن [...]

    24. a book for anyone willing to step outside of the insitutionalized perspective of life that most of America and the world finds itself in. Every line is an intuitive and insightful proclamation of the gut feelings we all have about the way life can be lived and should be lived. I have heard the quote on marriage being like two trees standing near each other with a little space between them so the wind (God) can come between them. it's an extremely popular and inspirational book!

    25. Kahlil Gibran is a name that's been revolving around the fringes of my to-read possibilities. As one of the most widely read writers in the world, how could he not?The Prophet combines faith and philosophy in a series of questions and answers on life and death and all the big topics in between, all delivered in a style similar to the Socratic Methodexcept that it's not really promoting any kind of critical thinking. Yes, there are some fundamental truths to be gleaned herein, same as you'd find [...]

    26. This book is cool because it is an excellent display of how similar the world's religions truly are. When it comes down to it, they are really all the same and the differences are mainly aesthetic.However, pretty much any person who has learned about many different religions is really going to come to the same conclusion. All the religions in the world are all compatible, because their entire purpose is to provide a belief system to help people in a society get along. The rules that make humans [...]

    27. نمی دونستم چه حسی نسبت بهش دارم. بعضی جمله هاش انقدر خوب و آشنا یا خاص بود که حس می کردم سریع باید یک جا نگهشون دارم و اون لحظه واسم این کتاب عالی بود و بعضی جاها اصلا درکش نمی کردم و ارتباط برقرار نمی کردمبهترین ریویو این کتاب به نظرم قسمتی از بهترین جملاتی هست که واقعا موندنی ب [...]

    28. This is a semi-poetic collection of views on important things in life, like love, giving, crime and punishment, pain, talking, and beauty. They are told by a wise person who gives his opinions when solicited by the town on his day of departure. I like this part: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 the [...]

    29. دي مش هتبقي أول و أخر مرة أقراه, الكتاب مليان جدا و أعتقد انه صعب ان الواحد يدركه من أول مرة و لكني استمتعت بشكل كبير جدا بيه. فكرته فكرتني جدا بخطبة الوداع لسيدنا محمد (ص) , و ده مفسره ثروت عكاشة في المقدمة عن تأثر جبران بالانجيل و القرأن و النسخة الانجليزيه في أسلوبها الشعري و ا [...]

    30. The song of love ,love of nature, and all other creatures , love that illuminates the wonderful aspects of life and that gives life meaning and depth.…He believe in the purity of human being and the goodness hidden in every soul, that is devoid of any evil it is a whisper on spirituality……A quote that I liked….Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to t [...]
