Khalil Gibran's The Prophet

Moved on! Check TheCairoCalls

I remember reading an article by big pharaoh a couple of weeks ago about his dream country. I wanted to elaborate on this theme for some time now, but I didn't have the time to do it.
Well I don't have the time yet, but here is one thing that I wish to have in my dream country:
-All school children are required to read Khalil Gibran's masterpiece The Prophet before they graduate from school.
I am still reading the book, and all I can say is that it is absolutely deeper and more insightful than any other human-written book I've read so far. A lot of it can be debated of course, but it serves as a very high bar against which you can measure your tolerance, forgiveness, and acceptance.
You can read the full text of the book here.
I discovered the site after shelling out 50 pounds to buy the book. Makes you wonder why the hell do we insist on this foolish habit (buying books!)

Moved on!

I found this blog surfing.

It used to be popular, for couples getting married, to read to each other from The Prophet, at the ceremony.

All the best.
