Kahil Gibran

i'm procrastinating.  
i'm trying to finish all my work for school next week.. and today i realized there are only 6 weeks until my summer holidays start! including exams! well, six weeks and two days if you wanna get precise.  
i'm going over to Cambridge for In His Honor tonight. that should be fun. 

and i can't believe i've never read the works of Kahil Gibran before. he is supposedly the third most famous poet in history. his words hold so much beauty and inspiration. and i just think this one is cute, haha :)

'And now you ask in your heart, "How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?"
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.'
