Only Then

Only when you drink from the river of silence,
shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then shall you begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs
then shall you truly dance.

Kahlil Gibran 1883 – 1931 Lebanon

    Me too though I didn’t discover his wisdom until the 70’s. True wisdom is never out of date, is it.

    I do love Kahlil Gibran. Had “The Prophrt” given to me in 1965 and I still treasure it! Thanks for sharing that.
