"Millions of people have tried to write books so that they can express the inexpressible, but they have utterly failed. I know only one book, The Book of Mirdad, which has not failed; and if you cannot get to the very essence of it, it will be your failure, not his." Osho "It is not for me to assess the relative literary merits of Kahlil Gibran and Mikhail Naimy; but although as a much younger man I derived immense satisfaction from reading The Prophet, I now find a much deeper wisdom in the less well known works of the Prophet's friend, Mikhail Naimy." Dr Kenneth Walker
