Paulo Coelho is Brazilian autor know for his internatioanlly bestselling The Alchemist. I read this amazing book when I was teenager and I adored it.
Second time, I read a few years ago. I was passing through difficult times (emotionally) and I needed something inspire and make me feel better. I remembered Paulo Coelho’s popular The Alchemist book (the story of a young man traveling the world, searching for purpose, adventure and love.
My book was in Turkey that’s why I directly went to a book shop and bought the English one. I finished it one day and It made me realize things that I should change in my life.
With this excuse Paulo Coelho became my favorite author. I bought all his books and read all of them but I especially read The Alchemist every year.

“Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path.
No one wants their life thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded.
Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything.
Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it – which of these two attitudes is the least destructive?
