A Quote



On what has been a terrible day and night for me, I thought I'd share a quote from Khalil Gibran's book "The Prophet", which was written in 1923.

It's kind of a non-denominational, "inspirational" book about a fictional prophet-like character in ancient times who answers people's questions about various topics with proverbs and the like.

Here's a quote in the chapter on Joy and Sorrow:

"Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the same well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain."

I hope that is true.

Good night and thanks for reading :)

I have heard about Khalil Gibran since I was a kid. However, I never read any of his books. I should start now. Thank you AloneGuy.
