"You often say, 'I would give, but only to the deserving.' The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture. They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish. 
-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

The Prophet is one of my top 5 favorite books. It is up there with The Alchemist, The Broken Wings, maybe Redeeming Love and I don't know what the 5th would be off the top of my head... should give that some thinking.

I love that we love Gibran together--we were roommates for a reason! The Prophet is one of my faves as well...I'd need to reread the Alchemist again. I have boring but "good" literature in my top five to look impressive I guess, maybe that needs some revision too, lol. I think Rumi poems might make it into your top 5?
