By Paulo Coelho

 
A man said to a friend:

 
‘You talk about God as if you knew him personally, down to the colour of his eyes. Why do you need to create something to believe in? Can’t you live without that?’

 
His friend replied:

 
‘Do you have any idea how the Universe was created? Can you explain the miracle of life?’

 
‘Everything around us is the result of chance. Things just happen.’

 
‘Exactly. Well, "Things just happen" is merely another name for God.’
