Love Quotes by Kahlil Gibran

the-archipelago-of-loveThe Archipelago of Love by Sabin Balasa (1932-2008)

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

When you part from your friend, you grieve not; For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain

I would not exchange the laughter of my heart for the fortunes of the multitudes.

Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.

Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.

In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans.

Love… It surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be.

I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end.

The wind may blow and then cease, and the sea shall swell and then weary, but the heart of life is a sphere quiet and serene, and the star that shines therein is fixed for evermore.

– Khalil Gibran

    I also like the one about how love is two souls sitting under the shade of a tree…or something like that 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing, Shree! And welcome back, as I´m remembering that you have had a pause from blogging. 🙂

      Here is more of the well known, wonderful quote you referred to in your first sentence:

      “Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. 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.” ― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
