The Alchemist- Paulo Coelho


"What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the soul of the world tests everything that was learnd along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we've learned as we've moved toward that dream. That's the point at which most people give up. It's the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have apeared on the horizon.'
"every search begins with beginner's luck. And every search ends with the victor's being severly tested."


It is said that the darkest hour of night came just before the dawn.

I love this book. I'm glad you do too. How many times can you tell a person you miss them?
