Printable Love Quote
Click on the image below for a larger version to print. The quote on it is from Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet.
"Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving"
It seems like in every generation, there are people who discover The Prophet all over again. In my case, it was one of my mother's favorite books and she had the record as well. I have her copy. My husband got interested in Kahlil Gibran's poetry after watching History Detectives.
Published in 1923, this collection of poetry on a series of subjects has been translated into many languages, and has been constantly in print.
