3 Gibran, Kahlil The Wisdom of Kahlil Gibran

82 pages. One of Kahlil Gibranís greatest gifts was his ability to capsulize his thoughts in jewel-like aphorisms and pithy maxims. This book is a collection of these sayings selected by a long-time student of Gibt-anís work. Joseph Sheban, whose revealing biography of Gibran, "Mirrors of the Soul", cast new light on the poetís work, searched through all of Gibranís books to make this compilation. The result is a work that offers easy access to the ideas and insights of the "prophet of Lebanon." Creases in the cover.

Needles of Stone Revisited, Graves, Tom
5 Graves, Tom Needles of Stone Revisited
U. K. Gothic Image Pub 1986 0906362075 / 9780906362075 Revised Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
227 pages about the realm of Earth mysteries -- megaliths, ley-lines, barrows, beacon hills, and other ancient features -- and puts forward some startling, but nonetheless highly plausible ideas. He reveals a view of our world that links past and present, a world that hints at a magical technology linking people and place; a world whose energies could perhaps have been harnessed in the past to improve the quality of life. It is also a plea for us to rediscover the profound connection with place that our ancestors knew, and to begin to heal a relationship with land that has been badly ravaged by the values and assumptions of the modem world. Needles of Stone has long and rightly been considered a classic. With the addition of new chapters, this 30th Anniversary edition allows the author to bring the work up-to-date and gives him an opportunity to reflect on what has happened since the book was first written.
