Khalil Gibran (1883 – 1931) was a Lebanese artist, poet and writer. He is best known for his book “The Prophet”, which is about the philosophical and mystical sermons of a wise man Almustapha. The Prophet has historically been and still is a world-wide sensation which has captured the imagination of millions of people.


In this article I’ve done a collection of some of the many beautiful and insightful things Khalil have had to say on the topic of love.

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
Khalil Gibran

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.
Khalil Gibran

Real beauty lies in the spiritual accord that is called love which can exist between a man and a woman.
Khalil Gibran

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
Khalil Gibran

All men love you for themselves. I love you for yourself.
Khalil Gibran

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Khalil Gibran

When love becomes vast love becomes wordless.
And when memory is overladen it seeks the silent deep.
Khalil Gibran

Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates the spirit that the laws of humanity and the phenomena of nature do not alter its course.
Khalil Gibran

Love without beauty is like flowers without fragrance.
Khalil Gibran

Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Khalil Gibran

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were.
Khalil Gibran

The sorrowful spirit finds rest when united with a similar one. They join affectionately, as a stranger is cheered when he sees another stranger in a strange land. Hearts that are united through the medium of sorrow will not be separated by the glory of happiness. Love that is cleansed by tears will remain externally pure and beautiful.
Khalil Gibran
