Italian term or phrase: La mente soppesa e misura
This was written by Kahlil Gibran, but I can't seem to find it in English anywhere. Can anyone help me find it, or offer a translation for "la mente soppesa e misura"? Thanks in advance.
La mente soppesa e misura, ma è lo spirito che giunge al cuore della vita e ne abbraccia il segreto; e il seme dello spirito è immortale.
