Book Review: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist Book CoverThe Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This book is a quick read that is filled to the brim with wisdom, insights and life lessons. It’s not dry or boring and doesn’t just tell you how to feel purposeful in this crazy, confusing world. But, through a great adventure and a story that is very well written, the reader walks away feeling enlightened with a peace of mind that your “personal legend” can be found and fulfilled at any age even when you are face to face with the worst of times.  

What’s a personal legend? You’ll just have to read the book to find out!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from this book:

“He was learning a lot of new things. Some of them were things that he had already experienced, and weren’t really new, but that he had never perceived before.”

“People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they want and need.”

“There is only thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
