Born in 1883, Kahlil Gibran was an enlightened Lebanese philosopher, author, poet, artist and mystic, who immigrated to the United States when He was young. Published in 1923, “The Prophet” became Kahlil Gibran’s most famous work. Today, we would like to share with you the following excerpt from “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran. “And of the man in you would I now speak. For it is he and not your god-self nor the [small self] in the mist, that knows crime and the punishment of crime. ‘Oftentimes have I heard you speak of one who commits a wrong as though he were not one of you, but a stranger unto you and an intruder upon your world. But I say that even as the holy and the righteous cannot rise beyond the highest which is in each one of you, So the wicked and the weak cannot fall lower than the lowest which is in you also.’”
