Reason and passion

June 28, 2009 at 11:44 pm (personal)

I just came across this beautiful quote by Khalil Gibran:

“Your reason and your passion are the rudder and sails of your seafaring soul. If either be broken, you can but toss and drift or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas. For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining. And passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.”
