A-Z Book List: P for Prophet

Again a non-fiction. Again something related to Philosophy. Again a very small book. But it packs a punch. Without much further ado, let me introduce you to the book for today’s alphabet.

Name: The Prophet by Khalil Gibran

Genre: Poetry, Philosophy, Classics, Spirituality

I guess most you must have heard of this Author and this Book. Because this is used mostly for the beautiful quotes. This is a photograph of the love quotes that I had written down much before I bought the book and read it fully. (There was an entry for Marriage and Children too… Wonder why I just chose those three… well, it must be the hormones. I was in my late teens you see 😉 ) I remember seeing them somewhere (I don’t recollect where) and that was the time when I used to write the lines I liked in my diary, so wrote them down and saved those words.

I was so awed by those quotes and they did have a big impact on me. I am one of those who uses other’s quotes whenever and wherever possible. And this book is full of them. I am glad that I have a copy of this book with me and I will have it wherever I go.

I could have picked up any other book for P, but this is one book I am very fond of and wanted to share it with you. This book even overrode the ‘Pride and Prejudice’ , enough said about this book already or the ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, which is another wonderful book.
