This is one of the books I am currently thumbing through. It was passed on to me by my father. I began reading it yesterday, Im about half way through and it is very fascinating. The first book I read by this author was The Alchemist which was very deep. The author Paulo Coelho has a way of painting scenes using his characters emotion for paint, but leaving space on the canvas for you to draw your own conclusions and insights. I will leave a few quotes from the book below. Grab a copy or score a download!
“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”
“If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.”
“Stop thinking about life and choose to live it”
“This was freedom; to feel what the heart desired with no thought to the opinion of the rest… She was free, for love liberates.”
“All life battles teach us something, even those we lose”
