Rereading Gibran

Isn't it amazing how one book can teach you so much? Every time I read Prophet something new seems to pop up. I guess our state of mind affects what we take away from a book. This is the verse that hit me this time around... 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.

For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.

And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.

For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
