At a very young age Gibran and his family immigrated to United States. After his studies in art he began his career with literary writing in both Arabic and English. He is also at No. 3 on the best selling poet list of all time, Shakespeare and Laozi being the first and second respectively. Although he has written some highly acknowledged books, ‘The Prophet’ was one of his master piece. He was regarded as a political rebel in the Arab world and considered a literary hero in Lebanon. “His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school” a source has quoted.

Without more ado here we present a list of the best Kahlil Gibran Quotes.
