Praise

“My all-time favorite collection of poems . . . [Gibran’s] poetry always roots me in my humanity.” —Rupi Kaur, author of Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers

“I’ve read The Prophet more times than I can count. I’ve owned and given away dozens of copies. I have one packed permanently in my travel bag. . . . The Prophet, and the man behind it, freed the poet in me. . . . The magic of diasporic nostalgia comes alive whenever Gibran recounts the idyllic folklore of his Lebanese youth. His words dance off the page and land softly in your belly. . . . No matter when and where you pick this up, it will feel as fresh and as relevant as ever. Even if you have no interest poetry—it doesn’t matter: The Prophet will speak to you. There is peace within its pages. It will become your medicine and your mentor too. And as you grow old, so will the words grow old with you. As you evolve, so will The Prophet—becoming what you need it to be, when you need it, fashioning itself into an anchor, a lifeline, and a friend.” —Rupi Kaur, from the Foreword

“Cadenced and vibrant with feeling, the words of Kahlil Gibran bring to one’s ears the majestic rhythm of Ecclesiastes. . . . If there is a man or woman who can read this book without a quiet acceptance of a great man’s philosophy and a singing in the heart as of music born within, that man or woman is indeed dead to life and truth.” —Chicago Post

“Exquisite . . . simply a masterpiece.” —The Independent (London)

“Like most wisdom, most of what [Kahlil Gibran] has to tell is ancient, the possession of all men who have thought much and hard about fundamental things. . . . But on it all there is also the imprint of a rich and unusual personality. . . . Gibran offers no short-cuts to happiness, no easily mastered formulae for successful living. Essentially, he bids you look closely into your own heart and mind.” —The New York Times
