Kahlil Gibran Quotes About Reason and Passion

Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite.
~Kahlil Gibran
Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody.
~Kahlil Gibran
But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?
~Kahlil Gibran
Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul. If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.
~Kahlil Gibran
For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.

Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing;
And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes.
~Kahlil Gibran
I would have you consider your judgment and your appetite even as you would two loved guests in your house.
~Kahlil Gibran
Surely you would not honour one guest above the other; for he who is more mindful of one loses the love and the faith of both.
~Kahlil Gibran
Among the hills, when you sit in the cool shade of the white poplars, sharing the peace and serenity of distant fields and meadows -- then let your heart say in silence, "God rests in reason."

~Kahlil Gibran
