How can words be picturesque? When there’s nothing that those eyes could see? The answer: When those words stirred wonderful emotions. When they invoked wishful thinking, utopian ambitions. In a world conquered by emotionless machines, emotionless corporate system i.e. flying birds, computers, gadgets, politics etc, these words brought out the humanity from beings who are mono-toned by routines, necessities to advance to the next level in life or even to feed hungry mouths.
A few months ago, I discovered a person by the name of Khalil Gibran. His quotes were different. What do I mean by different? I’ve read a lot of quotes, and I have to say not many of them would draw me in as Khalil’s did, some were simply exhibiting usage of bombastic words to explain the simplest element of life or its motivation. My preference might be different than yours. So read his quotes and ask yourself. This is where I go to when my memory couldn’t recall those picturesque words ->Khalil Gibran’s Quotes . My personal favourite would be “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. ~Khalil Gibran”
