Handful Of Beach Sand - Kahlil Gibran

"When you tell your trouble to your neighbor you present him with a part of your heart. If he possesses a great soul, he thanks you; if he possesses a small one, he belittles you."

"I abstain from the people who consider insolence, bravery and tenderness cowardice. And I abstain from those who consider chatter wisdom and silence ignorance."

"I use hate as a weapon to defend myself; had I been strong, I would never have needed that kind of weapon."

"There are among the people murderers who have never committed murder, thieves who have never stolen and liars who have spoken nothing but the truth."

"Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children."
