    4.5 Beautiful poems to be read time and time again "Love is the only freedom in this world. Because it elevates the spirit to such a supreme point that neither mankind's lawsnor its customs can touch it,nor can the laws or facts ofnature change its course.""Narrow-minded love seeks to possess the beloved.But boundless love is never so demanding.""Who would sell me one beautiful thought for a hundred pounds of gold? Who would exchange one minute of love for a handful of gems?Who would give me one eyethat can see beauty,in exchange for all my treasures?"

    Beautifully written without becoming too overly sentimental. "I want to die from longing, and neverlive in boredom. I want there to be,in the depth of my soul,a hunger for love and beauty.As I observe mankind, I seethat those who are satisified are the mostwretched, and the most attached to matter.I have also heard the sighs of thosewho are full of desire and longing and have found in them a gentlenesssweeter than the sweetest melody."

    a deceptively simple book of love poems that you'll be finished in 15 minutes flat, but then something interesting happens - you'll find yourself replaying phrases and poems and thinking about the underlying meanings in the text. Before you know it you'll be thinking about your own ideas of the meaning of Love

    Beautiful and completely split open in certain places:"I want to die from longing, and neverlive in boredom. I want there to be,in the depth of my soul,a hunger for love and beauty.As I observe mankind, I seethat those who are satisified are the mostwretched, and the most attached to matter.I have also heard the sighs of thosewho are full of desire and longing and have found in them a gentlenesssweeter than the sweetest melody."And in other places I really struggled to get through...

    The moment I stumbled upon this book, covered in dust, in a huge library of my uncle who is an Ambassador at Europe - I was flabbergasted. This book really intrigued me! I was 14 at the time, and this exposure really provided me with a foundation to agnize my own hidden potentials at romantic writings and poetry, too. I really admire Khalil Gibran, I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves poetry. His thoughts are awesome.:)I have also read extensive works of his, and also his biography.

    This is a beautiful and moving book that I am going to purchase a copy of (borrowed this one from the library) so I can return to it again and again to enjoy it some more. Khalil Gibran's writings about love are sweet and beautiful, inspiring and sometimes sad, while the calligraphy illustrations are truly stunning. I am thinking of enlarging some of these gorgeous drawings and framing them for my home. I'd like to learn to read Arabic just so I can understand these beautifully and artistically written words. This is a book to cherish and peruse again and again.

    Brilliant - I wish there was a little more commentary on the poetry.

    So I have a vague desire to make my writing a bit more poetic, so I’m trying to read more poetry, I guess. Picked up on a whim, Letters in the Sand: The Love Poems of Khalil Gibran is a neat mix of short love poems and beautiful Arabic calligraphy by Lassaâd Metoui.Some of the poems were a bit too airy for me, an Gibran is definitely of the ‘love is a special kind of anguish’ school of thought. But some of them were definitely quite poignant:*Love one another,but make not a bond of love:Let it rather be a moving sea betweenthe shores ofyour souls.*The feelings we live throughin love and in lonelinessare simply, for us,what hide tideand low tide are to the sea*Sorrow is just a wallbetween two gardens

    I really believed that Khalil Gibran's, Love Letters in the Sand, would be a much shorter read. It wasn't a long read but, I found myself slowing down, taking in, and really feeling each piece presented. The writing has a nice flow, the font is easy on the eyes, and each piece leaves you reflecting on what you just read. There is no preaching or any of that "deep" poetry that leaves you confused. Yet, I did find myself thinking and not in that whole college level thinking about the world around me but, thinking about me and envisioning myself at peace in the world. And I liked that.I'll be reading this book many times over; maybe while wearing a long flowing skirt and a thick sweater while drinking hot tea on a cold misty morning or, maybe while sitting under a cloudless blue sky while the sun's warmth dances across my shoulders. It is that type of book that provokes this type of thinking.

    Even though the poems he wrote in this book is simple. But the meanings behind them are profound and inspiring. One walk through this mystical book of "Love Letters in the Sand" would allow you to reignite with your lost soul.

    Halil Cibran'ın Mey Ziyade'ye yazılmış aşk mektupları...Edebiyatçıların mektupları daha parçalayıcı oluyor. Yine de tam istediğim gibi otobiyografik değildi maalesef..

    from a few of his works incredible excerpts and beautiful calligraphy. I bought this from the British Museum at a beautiful calligraphy exhibit in 2006.
