Characterized by its learning and spirituality, the culture of the Arab world has flourished at the crossroads of history, a rich source of perennial philosophy expressed through a diverse range of literature and poetry, both religious and secular. The Wisdom of the Arabs draws on this vast spectrum of writings, from classical literature and the holy Qur'an to traditional folk sayings and the more recent wisdom of Kahlil Gibran. Thought-provoking and engaging, these passages offer advice on everything from the demands of daily life to the path of leadership and the search for the divine. Offering a combination of practical and spiritual wisdom, as well as a deeper insight into the joys, sadnesses, and passions of the Arab peoples, this little treasury will provide nurture and nourishment for readers of all backgrounds.
