Monday Inspiration: The Prophet

Posted November 25, 2013 by elizatilton in Uncategorized / 7 Comments

The first gift my husband gave me, back when we first started dating, was a copy of The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. If you’re not familiar with the book, here’s some background.

A prophet stayed in a place for twelve years while awaiting for a ship to take him home. When the ship arrived, the people asked him to bestow some of his wisdom and truth into them before he left.

The below is a part of his passage on beauty.

 “People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.”

  1. Lovely quote(& pic)! Though if I think about the quote too hard, my brain starts to hurt, lol! But hey, it's morning and I've not yet had any caffeine. And I just had to Google how to spell caffeine. Sad…

  2. Hey there I am so excited I found your site, I really found you by error, while I was researching on Digg for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a marvelous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at the moment but I have saved it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great b.

    • I’m trying to figure out if you’re spam or not since my blog is flooded with SPAM right now I’ve been weeding out all the stuff….

  3. I believe everything published was very logical. But, consider this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a title to possibly get people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
