Today’s question by the reader : Edwin

Author: Paulo Coelho

Your books contain all these wisdoms for better living. Do you have a mentor or is it all selfstudy?

Yes, I do have a mentor – better saying, I have several mentors: my neighbor, the taxi driver, the stranger that starts a conversation with me and it is not a stranger anymore, or the person that I crossed on the street, or the book that I open by chance, or a music that strikes me at the right moment. My mentors are people that I meet on the course of an ordinary day.
