Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran is a writer many of us found in the seventies. He developed almost a cult following. He was born near the Holy Cedars of Lebanon. He and his family moved to America. He went to schools in Boston. The family sent him back to Lebanon to go to college. He later also attended college in Paris. He was a painter and a writer.


He wrote of Mother Earth and carried the torch of freedom that sprinkled through his writings. He felt everyone should be free.

 ” I love you, my Brother, wherever you are, whether you kneel in your church, worship in your synagogue or pray in your mosque.”


“Are you troubled by the many faiths that Mankind professes? Are you lost in the valley of conflicting beliefs? Do you think that the freedom of heresy is less burdensome than the yoke of submission, and the livery of dissent safer than  the stronghold of acquiescence? If such be the case, then make Beauty your religion, and worship her as your godhead; for she is the visible, manifest and perfect handiwork of God.”


” They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold; and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.”

“The truly great man is he who would master no one, and who would be mastered by none. ”

“A bigot is a stone-deaf orator.”

” An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.”

“Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.”

The Greek government has been forced to withdraw a tourism video unveiled in London this week because it contained footage of the infamous 1936 Olympics held in Berlin under Hitler.

The offending clip, which depicted the torch lighting ceremony at the controversial pre-war games, would be “removed immediately” officials said, after being alerted to the gaffe by the Guardian. By last night the video had been taken down from YouTube.

“This was a commemorative video marking 100 years of the Greek tourism organisation, that was…
