Doubts

Friday, January 4th, 2008

In my heart I know that the path I’m following is right. That doesn’t stop me from having doubts that things won’t work out. You start thinking about all the hurdles that must be overcome. What ifs? Then something happens and my faith is restored.

The Alchemist

Friday, January 4th, 2008

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

(Note: This summary is by the author)

The book that makes the world dream

When you want something, the whole Universe conspires to help you realize your dream.

Santiago, the hero of the novel, already forms part of a select gallery of illustrious characters and leads us through his story to experience a remarkable adventure.

“When I wrote The Alchemist, I was trying to understand the reason for the existence of life. Instead of writing a philosophical treatise, I decided to converse with the child inside my soul.

To my surprise, this child was living inside millions of people around the world. With this book I wanted to share with my readers the questions which, precisely because they don’t have an answer, make life a great adventure”. - Paulo Coelho
