Thought for the Day

Doubt is a pain too lonely
to know that faith is his twin brother.

Khalil Gibran
(1883-1931)



*Gubran Khalil Gubran

Born: January 6, 1883 Bsharri, Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Syria
Died: April 10, 1931 (aged 48) New York City, United States

A Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in modern-day Lebanon (then part of the Ottoman Mount Lebanon mutasarrifate), as a young man he emigrated with his family to the United States where he studied art and began his literary career. He is chiefly known for his 1923 book The Prophet, a series of philosophical essays written in English prose. An early example of Inspirational fiction, the book sold well despite a cool critical reception, and became extremely popular in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is considered to be the third most widely read poet in history, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu.
