Valid XHTMLMarriage XFN WordPress.comMarriage is the union of two divinities that a third might be born onearth. It is the union of two souls in a strong love for the abolishment ofseparateness. It is that higher unity which fuses the separate unitieswithin the two spirits. It is the golden ring in a chain whose beginning is aglance and whose ending is eternity.It is the pure rain that falls from anunblemished sky to fructify and bless the fields of divine nature.KnowledgeLearning follows various roads, Wenote the start but not the end, Fortime and fate must rule thecourse, Whilewe see not beyond the bend.The best of knowledge is adream Thegainer holds steadfastuncowed converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
  2. 2. By ridicule and movessereneDespised and lowly in the crowd.Bravery is a volcano , the seed of wavering does not grow on its crater.Knowledge and Understanding are life’s two faithful companions who willnever prove untrue to you.Perhaps we are nearest to God each time we try to divide him and findhim indivisble.Yet do I say that art ,through drawing a line between theBeautiful and the ugly , is the nearest way to God.Pure Meditation is another way.But it leads to silence and to self-confinement. Silence is truer and more expressive than speech;and thehour shall comewhen we shall be silent.But why muzzle our tonguesbefore that hour has struck ?Keep me away from the wisdom that does not cry , the philosophy thatwhich does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow beforechildrenNot all of us are enabled to see with our inner eyes the great depth of lifeand it is cruel to demand that the weak sighted see the dim and far.Between the frown of the tiger and the smile of the wolf the flock isperished ; the ruler claims himself as the king of the law and the priest asthe representative of God. Between these two , the bodies are destroyedand the souls wither into nothing.***Say not “there goes a learned man “ ..Nor “there a chieftan dignified ‘The best of men are in the herd , And heed the shepherd as their guide.***Braving obstacles and hardships is nobler than retreat to tranquility. Thebutterfly that hovers around the lamp until it dies is more admirablethan the mole that lives in a dark tunnel.The human soul is but part of a burning torch which God Separated fromHimself at creation.If I can open a new corner in a man’s own heart to him I have not lived invain.Life itself is the thing, not joy or pain or happiness or unhappiness. Tohate is as good as to love – an enemy may be as good as a friend. Live foryourselfWhen the hand of Life is heavy and night songless, it is the time for loveand trust. And how light the hand life becomes and how songful thenight, whenone is loving and trusting all.(Extract from one of Gibran’s letters dated 19th December 1916)Among intelligent people the surest basis for marriage is friendship – thesharing of real interests- the ability to fight out ideas together andunderstand each other’s thoughts and dreams.(Gibran’s words quoted from Mary Haskell’s journal dated 26th May1923)What difference does it make, whether you live in a big city or in acommunity of homes ? The real life is within.(Gibran’s words quoted from Mary Haskell’s journal dated 27th May1923)Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge.The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what helongs to attain.We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting. converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
  3. 3. To be able to look back upon ones life in satisfaction, is to live twice.Desire is half of life, indifference is half of death.We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans.Hell is not in torture; Hell is in an empty heart.If I accept the sunshine and warmth I must also accept the thunder andlightning.The most pitiful among men is he who turns his dreams into silver andgold.The real in us is silent; the acquired is talkative.ChildrenAnd a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, “Speak to us ofChildren.”And he said:Your children are not your children.They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.They come through you but not from you,And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.You may give them your love but not your thoughts.For they have their own thoughts.You may house their bodies but not their souls,For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,not even in your dreams.You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sentforth.The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends youwith His might that His arrows may go swift and far.Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that isstable.Leave a ReplyYour em ail address will not be published.
