"Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) was born in Bsharri in Maronite Christian Lebanon. His writings teach a philosophy of universal peace and religious tolerance based on a spirit of love that transcends cultural differences. He wrote in Arabic until 1918, when he began writing in English. The publication of "The Prophet" (1923) established his fame in English-speaking countries. It is a mystical poem that explores the importance of love."
