The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Prophet:

The *still* applicable essays of Kahlil Gibran.

My favorite Kahlil Gibran quote from the book:

"Much of your pain is self-chosen."

Questions I pondered while reading The Prophet:

Should troubles be shared?

Is happiness worth the unhappiness?

My review of The Prophet:

Share quotes.

Share joy.

Share the book.
