انه جبـران وكفى :)
حيث الحياة وقد رسمت بكلماته
تلك الكلمات التى تمس قلبك وروحك
وتثرى قريحتك ...
انه الإبداع فى لمس القلوب

ما زلت مستمراً فى قراءة هذا الكتاب إلا أنني آثرت أن أكتب مراجعتي له - و كثيرا ما سأفعل لاحقا لكتب أخرى - أثناء القراءة لأكتب إنطباعاتي اللحظية مع الكتب الممتعة.

هذه أول قراءة لى لجبران ، و أظنها لن تكون الأخيرة - رغم ما رأيت من شطط فى بعض خواطره نابعة لموقفه من الدين عموما - ؛ لحكمة كثير مما كُتب !

خليط الأفكار و الخواطر المحكمة .. رملٌ و زَبَد اجتمعا معا دون تدبير

الترجمة رائعة جدا و أراها لا تخل بالمعنى ، بل العربية تزيده رونقاً !

مقتطفات من الكتاب :

كثيراً ما نستعير من الغد لنردّ ديون الأمس !

لمما يُزهى به القتيل أنه ليس القاتل !

أمرُّ ما فى أحزان اليوم ذكرى سعادة الأمس ! ( )

Gibran's ability to encapsulate a profound concept in two or three lines is incredible.

There's so much to think about on every page of this small book that it will require multiple readings to really appreciate what he's saying. That's not to say that he's obscure, because he's certainly not, he's mostly cuttingly precise and clear. It's that his message is, like most great teachers, a challenging one that for most of us (certainly me) would take a massive change of character and life-style to realise. Sadly, I'm far to lazy to make the changes, but maybe some of it will stick and I will be a little bit the better for it.

I bought another two of his books at the same time as this one and will read them soon: I want to learn more. ( )
