THE PROPHET by

Kahlil Gibran

 

This is the story of the prophet Al-Mustafa and his conversations with various acquaintances, as he returns home after a long absence. Told in 26 prose poetry fables written in English, the book covers areas such as love, passion, pain, freedom and friendship. The Prophet has been translated into over 100 different languages, making it one of the most translated books in history. 


The Prophet provides timeless spiritual wisdom on a range of subjects, including giving, eating and drinking, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, teaching, time, pleasure, religion, death, beauty and friendship.

"The hidden well-spring of your soul must needs rise and run murmuring to the sea; And the treasure of your infinite depths would be revealed to your eyes. But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure; And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line. For self is a sea boundless and measureless."
