The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.
A spiritual masterpiece set in prose poetry, The Prophet follows the advice of the prophet Al Mustafa as he gives his insight on the intricacies of life and the human condition. His thoughts comprise those on love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death.
A penetrating work, The Prophet also includes twelve drawings by Gibran himself.
