"Your reason and your passion
are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.
Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of white poplars,
sharing the peace and serenity of distant meadows... -then let your heart
say in silence,"God rests in reason!"-
And when the storm comes,and the mighty winds shakes the forest,
and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky -then let your heart
say in awe,"God moves in passion!"
And since you are a breath
in God's sphere,
and a leaf in God's forest
you too should
rest in reason
and move in passion.
Khalil Gibran was a Lebanese-American artist, poet and writer. (1883-1931)
