Love One Another - 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.
Fill each other's cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow..

Khalil Gibran


  1. he was the man - who died without even meeting his lover at all..

    his letters to her - r very touching..
    u may try that in any website..

    u r the only one - who read my blog and urs is the first comment..

    thanks for visiting and commenting..
    (as usual Khalil takes his share!!)

  2. As far as I understand it, he met his lover, they met frequently and had an affair but were never united.

  3. thanks for correcting me..
    she was 10 years elder..
    and wife of another..
    they had a beautiful letter correspondence over - 23 years..
    in his will he wrote that - the letters of her received by him = should be of her..
    (thanks wikipedia)
    always a gal is there - behind a man's life..
