The poignancy of Khalil Gibran

"Now I realize that the present moment contains all time and within it is all that can be hoped for, done and realized... My soul preached to me, my brother, and taught me much. And your soul has preached and taught as much to you. For you and I are one, and there is no variance between us save that I urgently declare that which is in my innerself, while you keep as a secret that which is within you. But in your secrecy there is a sort of virtue."

--Khalil Gibran, Thoughts and Meditations, 1960
