From 'The Prophet'

   'Surely there is no greater gift to a man
than that which turns all his aims into
parching lips and all life into a fountain.
   And in this lies my honour and my re-
   That whenever I come to the fountain to
drink I find the living water itself thirsty;
   And it drinks me while I drink it.'

                  - Khalil Gibran, 'The Prophet'.
