You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?
And tomorrow, what shall tomorrow bring to the overprudent dog burying bones in the trackless sand as he follows the pilgrims to the holy city? - K.Gibran

You shall be free indeed
not when your days are
without a care nor your nights
without a want and a grief,
but rather when these things
girdle your life and
yet you rise above them
naked and unbound.

--Kahlil Gibran

Let These Be Your Desires (by Khalil Gibran)

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself;
But if your love and must needs have desires,
Let these be your desires:

To melt and be like the running brook
That sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness,
To be wounded by your own understanding of love,
And to bleed willingfully and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart,
And to give thanks for another day of loving.
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstacy,
To return home at eventide with gratitude,
And then to sleep with a prayer
For the beloved in your heart
And a song of praise upon your lips.

~ Khalil Gibran
