Kahlil Gibran quotes

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream.

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don't, they never were.

Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.

We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.

If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom?

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.

Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking.

Your friend is your needs answered.

I never understood a word John Cassavetes said. And I think he did that deliberately. Peter Falk bio

If anybody wanted to photograph my life, they'd get bored in a day. Matt Damon

I really am happy that I met my agency and my management company, because they see me as a person and not just a Latin woman. Daniella Alonso
