The Alchemist

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Things come to you when they are supposed to;

Yesterday I started reading 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho, a book my cousin gave me for my Birthday.

I've heared of the book before, but actually didn't know what to expect…well, it's 'A fable about following your dream'! Nice timing since I am thinking a lot lately about where I am today, where I want myself to be and how to get there 🙂

A related quote from the book: "Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself," the alchemist replies. "And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity."
