"On Eating and Drinking"

     And in the autumn, when you gather
the grapes of your vineyards for the wine-
press, say in your heart,
     "I too am a vineyard, and my fruit shall
be gathered for the winepress,
     And like the new wine I shall be kept in
eternal vessels."
     And in winter, when you draw the wine,
let there be in your heart a song for each
     And let there be in the song a remem-
brance for the autumn days, and for the
vineyard, and for the winepress.

-Excerpt from The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
