This book provides some of the greatest lessons for life; I loved the ones about when to talk, and when to remain silent. Recommended

March 7, 2011: An animated feature based on the Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet is being produced by actress Salma Hayek's Ventanarosa Productions, along with Clark Peterson and Ron Senkowski. According to Deadline.com, the "intention is for different directors to helm each chapter, with an interconnecting theme and a musical through-line."

Among the filmmakers expected work on the adaptation are Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville), John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda), Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), Chris Landreth (Oscar-winning short Ryan), Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells), Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues), Bill Plympton (Guard Dog and Your Face) and Kunio Kato (Oscar-winning short Tsumiki no ie).

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward or tarries with yesterday.
