Khalil Gibran- The Grave-Digger.

“The Grave-Digger”

Once, as I was burying one of my dead selves, the grave-digger came by and said to me, “Of all those who come here to bury, you alone I like.”

Said I, “You please me exceedingly, but why do you like me?”

“Because,” said he, “They come weeping and go weeping—you only come laughing and go laughing.”

Excerpt From: Gibran, Khalil. “The Madman.”
