We challenge you to read Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist, and not feel enlighten. Not only is his style poetic but you can’t help but smile as you read the wise words. Here are just a few reasons why we love it so…
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”
“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”
“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.”
“Because true love never keeps a man from pursuing his destiny”
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”
“What is the world’s greatest lie?” the little boy asks.
