Publisher's Summary

The prophet Al Mustafa, before leaving the city where he has been living twelve years, stops to address the people. They call out for his words of wisdom on many sides of the human condition, and he addresses them in terms of love and care. He has much to offer from his observations of the people, and he illustrates with images they can relate to. The author, Gibran, was influenced by the Maronites, the Sufis, and the Baha'i. His philosophy, though deist, is primarily aimed at the good within ourselves, and the common-sense ways in which we can unlock it.

An illustration from his chapter on Friendship: "And let your best be for your friend. If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also. For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill? Seek him always with hours to live." The prophet's gentle words have inspired their translation into over 108 languages. Listen to them with an open mind. You may find some burdens and frustrations hidden within you eased.

Disappointed

Have heard about this book for years so decided to finally see what it was all about. But sadly to me it was a waste of time.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE 😦

this book was an absolute eye-opener highly recommended because it really put into perspective many things that you are blinded by on a day-to-day basis so definitely read!
