What to expect

One of the most popular and profound inspirational writers of all time shares simple wisdom for living a happy and fulfilling life.

This book is a collection of Gibran’s words on how to live. Here are his thoughts on what it means to live in community and solitude and what gives life meaning, along with his often prescient views on government, organized religion, wealth, and commerce. Gibran’s sensibility feels contemporary. He did not recognize any ultimate authority outside of the human soul:“It were wiser to speak less of God, whom we cannot understand and more of each other, whom we may understand.”

This is the essential Gibran, with 88 selections organized into 5 sections that elucidate answers to the questions that each of us face:
