Stories & Reflections
I’m a big fan of the famous Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho. I first read his best-selling book The Alchemist and from then on, I became a fan. His thoughts and ideas are just exceptional. I’m simply amazed on how his mind works and how and where he gets his ideas. And when I found his Official Site and left a message, I was more impressed when he replied to my message. I’m not sure if he was the one who read my message and replied, but still, he or the one maintaining the site took the time to reply to one of the millions of fans leaving a message for the author.
I haven’t read all his published works yet, since I’m always in front of the computer, books are second things for me because I still have dozens of stories from Fictionpress that I’ve saved to read. Anyways, I’ve Veronika Decides to Die but I think I have to re-read it again since I wasn’t totally into that book.
And last night, while I was searching about him, and some works he has written, I discovered Maktub, which is a collection of his best columns published in the Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sí£o Paulo, according to Wikipedia. So I’d like to share some very moving quotes from the collection:
