Very little with a big message Dec 18 2007
By Doxie Lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a wonderful little book that I purchased for a good friend. I didn't realize that it truly is a "little" book as the size is about the size of the palm of my hand but it had some wonderful excerpts from Gibran.
After seeing the one I got for my friend I want to purchase one for my own collection.

A Collection of Thoughts about Love May 30 2009
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you are new to Kahlil Gibran then I'd recommend you start with The Prophet. I also think you will understand Kahlil Gibran even better if you read his letters in Love Letters: The Love Letters of Kahlil Gibran to May Ziadah. He shows his heart in both books and then you will be ready to understand more of what he reveals in "The Little Book of Love."

This is a collection of quotes and prose poems from his many books. This is the third book I've read and I was not disappointed. In fact it made me all the more eager to read additional books. Once you read one book you will want to read them all. In each book Kahlil Gibran says things that are simply profound and meaningful to understanding any topic he has addressed. In this book he speaks of the love of God, country, family and friends. He also briefly touches on romantic love.

All of the quotes in this book are filled with poetic beauty. I especially enjoyed his thoughts on how the soul is not content because it desires perfection. That made me think of my life a little differently than before. I think the only thing I disagreed with is his thoughts about how love doesn't come from a long companionship. I think there is definitely room for a love to grow between two people over time.

After reading these quotes I now have numerous books on my must-read list. I think after you experience this book you will feel the same.

Quintessential Gibran, made portable Aug. 23 2009
By Busy Executive - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been a Gibran fan all my life, although as I've aged, I've come to see his works in a different way. In my younger days, it was about the beauty of the words, the phrasing, the, it's about the meaning and how it relates to the experiences of my life. Gibran is like that.

I find this particular book a good collection of Gibran's most famous Love poems, although as another reviewer suggested, it is brief and a bit narrowly focused on some of his most romantic works.

If this is to be your only Gibran, I would never recommend will miss out on too much. Instead, start with The Prophet, then wind your way through Sand and Foam, Broken Wings and a few others. Think of them (or one of the collected writings) as the prerequisites that will give you the perspective to understand and appreciate this lovely book.

Amour, amour, amour! May 23 2014

This wonderful little book is aimed at your heart, and it hits the mark. Once I had opened it, I couldn't put it down until I had read every word. Caution: if you have never loved another truly, you won't get it. It made me cry for the joy of reliving love's first delights.
