You know when I read these Passages that Elvis Loved in the Books he read, and how it was so like him to be the type of person that he thought the Lord Wanted him to be. It would have been so Easy for Elvis to be a whole Different Person, just think about it. He didn't have to give Gifts and Help people in Need. Here he finally got his Parents and himself out of the Ghetto, He had all the Fame and Fortune he ever wanted. So he didn't have to share his Wealth with his Employees or any body else, especially Complete Strangers. But he never thought one time of ever being that type of person, so that's why when I read about want people say he was this and that. Why can't they see Elvis like I have written here, I well never Understand. :?

Maybe someday more people will see and understand Elvis for the true man he was, understand and be sensitive to Elvis' innate spirituality and goodness from within, a beautiful man inside and out! Here is more from "The Prophet" for you, ladies, hope you enjoy:

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Love

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Love

If you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Love

You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let winds of the heavens dance between you.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Marriage

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, and yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Children

You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Giving

It is well to give when asked but it is better to give unasked, through understanding.
Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet, On Giving
