Kahil Gibran?

I was wondering what people's thoughts were on Kahil Gibran - specifically his work 'The Prophet' (as that's the only one I have) but in general, as well. I've loved the book since I found it on my mum's shelf, and refer to it often. It has a place of honour on my bookshelf.

I even used a portion of it (On Eating and Drinking) in my Autumnal Equinox ritual:

And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:
"Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons"

So, naturally, I was curious - how many of you have read any of his works? What do you think of them?
