He was here and there
We were there
He is here and there
We are here
He will be here and there
We will be there

Kahlil Gibran Qouates (Timing 1883-1903)


I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest,
with visions to be realized,
than lord among those without dreams and desires.

I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge,
silence to be ignorance,
and affection to be art.

If my survival caused another to perish,
then death would be sweeter and more beloved.

If the grandfather of the grandfather of Jesus had known
what was hidden within him,
he would have stood humble and awe-struck before his soul.

If the other person injures you,
you may forget the injury;
but if you injure him you will always remember.

If you cannot work with love but only with distaste,
it is better that you should leave your work.

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

If you reveal your secrets to the wind,
you should not blame the wind
for revealing them to the trees.

If your heart is a volcano,
how shall you expect flowers to bloom?

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter,
and sharing of pleasures.

For in the dew of little things
the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

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.

Let there be no purpose in friendship
save the deepening of the spirit.

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

Love and doubt have never been on speaking terms.

Love is trembling happiness.

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

Love possesses not nor will it be possessed,
for love is sufficient unto love.

It surrounds every being
and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.

Is death not the twin brother of birth?

And life goes on for ever and ever.

Do you see not mountains looking out of the window?
Why do your house walls have openings, than?


What is a dome, if it isn't where you live?
What is a home, if it isn't a dome?

Kabir Quotes (Timeline: 1398-1518)


O servant, where dost thou seek Me?
Lo! I am beside thee.
I am neither in temple nor in mosque:
I am neither in Kaaba nor in Kailash:
Neither am I in rites and ceremonies, nor in Yoga and renunciation.
If thou art a true seeker, thou shalt at once see Me:
Thou shalt meet Me in a moment of time.
Kabîr says, "O Sadhu! God is the breath of all breath."


If the Guru be blind the disciple is born blind:
When the blind lead the blind both fall into well!


Man is but a doll made from five elements, to whom a human's name is given ...
We are but guest of four days, yet we take up so much room!


Do not praise yourself not slander others:
There are still many days to go and any thing could happen!


Him whom I went out to seek, I found just where I was:
He now has become myself whom before I called `Another'!


Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
You will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrinerooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
Not in masses, nor kirtans,
not in legs windingaround your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me, you will see me instantly
—you will find me in the tiniest house of time.


Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O friend! go not there; In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus,
and there gaze on the infinite beauty.


The effulgance of the supreme Being is beyond the imagination:
Ineffable is His beauty, to see it is the only `proof'.
