Marriage: Kahlil Gibran, Author of "The Prophet", Bsharri, Lebanon

Updated: Apr 4

Then Almitra spoke again and said, And what of Marriage, master?

And he answered saying:

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.

You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.

Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of your be alone,

Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.


Since its initial release in 1923, The Prophet has been a global bestseller and has been regarded as a symbol of intellectual advancement and freedom of thought by numerous reader generations. This distinctive and enduring classic is made up of 28 prose poetry fables, each of which explores a different aspect of human experience. The Prophet is a remarkable collection of poems that is well worth cherishing.

The Prophet is a complex exploration of the world as seen through the prophet Almustafa's eyes as he travels back to his home land after a 12-year exile. Almustafa becomes engrossed in conversations with a variety of guests on board the ship taking him home. Each talk is unique from the previous one while yet offering worthwhile experiences.

Almustafa's reflections on each topic shed light on the ways in which one can better appreciate the levels of intense human emotion by offering insight, clarity, and depth. Gibran's words have brought with them a particular thoughtful and illuminating analysis of what it means to be human, drawn from the complexities of human mind and circumstance. It is impossible to overestimate the significance of reading The Prophet, which has received honorable mentions from famous writers and poets. A must-read for anyone looking for emotional clarity, direction, or human insight. The Prophet is still relevant today as it was when it was first written, with each poem and line having a different length and explanation.


The Prophet, the best-known work of Lebanese-American author, poet, and philosopher Kahlil Gibran. Gibran, who was born to a Maronite-Christian family in an Ottoman-occupied village, emigrated to the United States in 1895 in search of a better life. As a young man grappling with the effects of having to leave his homeland, Gibran studied art and literature and became inexorably involved in political activism. He planned to support himself as an artist. Gibran wrote his works in an effort to spark a revolution of free thought and artistic expression, bearing the burden of political and religious upheaval on his shoulders. The Prophet by Gibran, one of history's best-selling novels, has garnered numerous honors and awards.
