A Few Words From Kahlil

No, and my whole heart isn’t in my work, and nobody’s whole heart is just in his work – your whole heart isn’t in anything – in any one thing. It is in everything … There’s just one thing our work needs – and that’s love. That’s what pupils want, what friends want, what strangers want, what an audience wants – what we all want … And that’s so easy to do – and yet we don’t do it – For I don’t mean an emotion. When I say “Love” – I mean just freedom and welcome and want and being all there with all of one’s self. Not with a philosophy and lots of ideas – that will make people say “what an interesting hour!” – but just with ourselves – the dearest thing we have – and it’s the only thing people want…

– Kahlil Gibran
