Gibran continues to inspire me in this book. It is written from the depths of his soul and from every beat of his heart, as every one of his works are. Some readers criticize his writings becasue they say it is "too hard to understand". This is a complement to Gibran, because the most precious things in life are not supposed to be easily understood. One must read his books and reflect the meaning into their own lives in order to even began to understand. Don't be afriad to challenge yourself.

Wisdom is poetry that sings in the mind. If we could enchant man's heart and at the same time sing in his mind, Then in truth he would live in the shadow of God.

The quotes from "SAND AND FOAM" enhances the thought process and I find better understanding of the people around me.

Our god exists in ourself. It takes thought provoking book to make us aware.

What a beautiful compilation!

I love this book. It was given to me as a Mother's Day present in 1973 and I've completely worn it out. (I'm buying a new one.) The sayings reflect joy, pain, fear and Love. They touch the soul, open the heart, give insight, healing inspiration, a knowing nod and a soft chuckle. It helped me move on during a very difficult time in my life and the aphorisms have stood the test of time. They are as relevant and insightful today as they were when Kahlil Gibran first penned them.

Dancing in the Rain...

...is the only way to describe how this book makes me feel. When I open the cover I am hit with Gibran's beautiful aphorisms which run through my body like electricity. With each reading the book changes. Some will explode out of the page one time and the next hide in the shadows. Some that I carry with me always are:

~Rememberance is a form of meeting.

~Forgetfulness is a form of freedom.

~How can I lose faith in the justice of life, when the dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not more beautiful than the dreams of those who sleep upon the earth?

It is a wonderful book in every way. I can't say enough about the beauty contained within.

Every time you read this book, you obtain new interpretations. I cannot explain how reading it makes you feel. But, for me, it provides an inner peace. It is, without a doubt one of my favorites books.
