On Children (Kahlil Gibran, 1883-1931)

"On Children" is one of the poetic essays in The Prophet, a masterpiece by the Lebanese poet-philosopher Kahlil Gibran.

It has influenced my outlook towards children, even towards all living and nonliving beings. For an English version, see http://www.katsandogz.com/onchildren.html
