Solomon ibn Gabirol (Salamo Ben Jehuda Ben Gebirol, known in the Christian West as Avicebrol) was a Spanish-Jewish poet and philosopher (c. 1021-c. 1058)


  • I before Thy greatness
    Stand, and am afraid:—
    All my secret thoughts Thine eye beholdeth
    Deep within my bosom laid.
    • Morning song, trans. Nina Davis [1].
  • In seeking wisdom, the first step is silence; the second, listening; the third, remembering; the fourth practicing; the fifth, teaching others
    • As quoted by Lama Surya Das, Huffington Post April 28, 2010 [2].
