The book Broken Wings is a poetic novel written by Kahlil Gibran and published in 1912. It is originally written in Arabic.

The novel is set at the beginning of the 20th century in the city of Beirut and introduces us to Selma Karamy, a young woman who is going to marry the nephew of a very prominent religious in the community.

The protagonist falls in love with this girl and is reciprocated, so they see each other in secret. On one occasion they are discovered and Selma is forbidden to leave the house, so the relationship becomes impossible.

Therefore, it is a tragic love story and highlights the social problems in those years in that area, highlighting the lack of women's rights and religious corruption. The ambition of a bishop who worships riches more than his God cuts short a true love story between the protagonists.

The book has enjoyed great world fame and has been taken both to the cinema and to a musical with the same name.

The best The Broken Wings quotes

One small crack does not mean you are broken, it means that you were put to the test and you didn't fall apart.


The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.


Sadness flies on the wings of the morning, and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.


And God said “Love Your Enemy,” and I obeyed him and loved myself.


A broken wing simply means, you have to find another way to fly. Have a wonderful day people.
