April 10th, 2010- Words of Wisdom/Stuff to Ponder

Excerpts from a book that’s been around for a while “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran which I recently read

– You give but little when you give of your possession. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

– Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Much of your pain is self-chosen.

– For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live.

– Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
