Nice entry, I'm now a little more familiar with the man and "The Prophet", but I also recall it was popular with the 60's counterculture. Some Googling found some interesting items.

A self portrait:


A photo of his memorial in Washington, D.C.:


"['The Prophet's'] popularity among adherents of 1960s counter culture inspired a parody, The Profit by 'Kehlog Albran', which furnished a number of quotations for the Unix fortune program."


All great works inspire good parodies ... smiley - zen

Thank you Wilma for this lovely insight into the life of Kahlil Gibran,

and thank you Steve K. for the photo links. I love to start my morning

with happy tears. I loved "The Prophet" so much that I bought 2 more

Gibran books for my shelves. I'm still an evolving dinosaur stepping

from books into electronic media. You're futuristic heroes. Thanks!
