Tears and Laughter

'“Gibran could write timeless truths in a way that makes the reader feel he is taking a walk in a quiet wood, or bathing in a cool stream; it soothes the spirit. But he could also write with a scorchlike fire.” —from the Introduction “Poet, you will one day rule the hearts, and / Therefore, your kingdom has no ending. / Poet, examine your crown of thorns; you will / Find concealed in it a budding wreath of laurel.” —from “The Poet” “A man between his heart and his soul is like a tender branch between the north and south winds.” —from “The Victors” '
