    "This quotation from the classic book by Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, illustrates why these writings have been popular for so long. This reviewer remembers getting his first copy of the book in Boston during the early 1950's, when it was widely circulated among college students at the time, as well as young adults who were starting out in that decade. It had a fresh take on the institutions of life, and offered that generation a sense of breaking away from convention without being particularly radical. It was a way to be non-conforming, without departing too far from traditional values. This may explain why it surged in popularity in the 1960s, when the generation coming of age at that time had a new kind of permission to break away, yet have a sense of a valid value system at the same time. To read and talk about The Prophet became a quite "cool" thing to do. Gibran's work had been around for a long time, but it is the type of literature that has a way of being rediscovered as each new generation comes along. This is at least partially why it retains its popularity over so many years."

    "I think the best way to describe this book is 'beautiful'. It's really one of those that get you to accept literature as a form of art if you haven't already. It has fantastic writing, pacing, emotion.. Honestly, I could praise it all day, but I rather you stop reading this and go buy it."

    "The book has nothing to do with Muslims and Islam. Actually I like the book since it is a decent philosophy book but again, if you are looking something about Muslims, this book is definitely not the one."

    "What a fine book! I love that the author is well known for both Arabic and English works. And I love the essay format where I can take it in small chunks whenever the mood strikes."

    "an interesting outlook"

    "Inspiring. And immensely clear and simple. It's actually really refreshing and humbling to read a book that was written so long ago and realize how the most important things in life never change and how easier it would be to be happy and peaceful if we took away all the noise of the world. Or at least some. The style is crystalline, the intentions are pure, and the musings are very endearing, and might touch you in a way you would not have expected. There is a reason this book has been printed for so long, and will keep on being printed for a very very long time. It talks to the decent human heart and inspires it."
