The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

Gibrans style of writing is my favorite :) Heres an excerpt:

"When you love you should not say, 'God is in my heart,' but rather, 'I am in the heart of God.' & think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fufill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt & be like a 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;
& to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart & give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;

& then sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart & a song of praise within your lips."
