The Alchemist

Written by Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist is one of the best-selling books in history. The story of Santiago, the shepherd boy on a journey to realize his “Personal Legend” has inspired people all over the world to live their dreams. I read it years ago as a teenager, but recently picked it up after turning 30 and it was a life changing re-read. I plan to read it every few years, because the life lessons in it are SO valuable. Some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“There is only one way to learn. It’s through action.”

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”

“Because I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man.”(Wo-man :))
