If I could take your troubles I would toss them into the sea, But all these things I'm finding Are impossible for me. I cannot build a mountain Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best, A friend that is always there.— Khalil Gibran
Jaw-dropping Poetry Is quotations
The best listeners listen between the lines.
Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
Wine is bottled poetry
Love in the Arab world is like a prisoner, and I want to set (it) free.
I want to free the Arab soul, sense and body with my poetry. The relationships between men and women in our society are not healthy.
The truth is... everything counts. Everything. Everything we do and everything we say. Everything helps or hurts; everything adds to or takes away from someone else.
What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love! Music is the Sister of Poetry and her Mother is sorrow!
Real poetry, is to lead a beautiful life. To live poetry is better than to write it.

enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.
Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.

It is absurd and anti-life to be part of a system that compels you to listen to a stranger reading poetry when you want to learn to construct buildings, or to sit with a stranger discussing the construction of buildings when you want to read poetry.
Art is the heart's explosion on the world.
Music. Dance. Poetry. Art on cars, on walls, on our skins. There is probably no more powerful force for change in this uncertain and crisis-ridden world than young people and their art. It is the consciousness of the world breaking away from the strangle grip of an archaic social order.
For every poet it is always morning in the world;
history a forgotten, insomniac night. The fate of poetry is to fall in love with the world in spite of history.
...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?
