It's my parents' tradition to always include a copy of The Prophet as part of their gift at weddings. The passage about mariage has always stuck with me most. "...Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver with the same music...For the pillars of the temple stand apart, / And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."

You know, it's funny -- I've never thought of his work as poetry. More as a kind of wisdom that transcends art, to be accepted or not, like scripture.

Wow, that Anais Nin quote stops me up short.

Lots to think about...
