The Prophet (Recommended Reads)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You know a paragraph is excellent when you deem it to be highlight-worthy – where it becomes worth memorising and quoting back in a given context. So, upon reading this book, I started to highlight such potential quotables, soon realising that such an endeavour is futile when there was so much eloquence and wisdom throughout. It is both a book, and a collection of life lessons encapsulated in beautiful rhetoric, and he didn’t need to write a novel to capture this.
Kahlil Gibran certainly has a way with words.
