"Rebellion without truth is like spring in a bleak, arid desert"

- Kahlil Gibran

About this Quote

This quote by Kahlil Gibran is a tip that rebellion without truth is eventually futile. It is like spring in a bleak, dry desert; it may bring a brief moment of appeal and life, but it will not last. Rebellion without truth is not rooted in reality and will not produce lasting change. It is a short lived moment of hope that will soon be replaced by the same bleakness and aridity that existed previously. To cause long lasting modification, rebellion needs to be rooted in fact and truth. It needs to be based upon truths and evidence, and it must be supported by a strong structure of understanding and understanding. Just then can it cause enduring change and progress.
