Wisdom of Paulo Coelho

"When someone sees the same people every day, as had happened with him at the seminary, they wind up becoming a part of that person' s life.

And then they want the person to change. If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry.

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own."

:: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

The Alchemist is one of my most favorite book. When i first started reading it i lost the book when it was finished halfway. I didn't immediately get another copy cause i didn't want it to be finished.

After about two or three months i again got the book and have started reading it. This time i will be noting and posting my most favorite lines from the book which offer great insight to our own life.

The line i just quoted here is very profound mentioning something which is so true. We often want other to change according to our wish or liking. And that becomes a big source of suffering. If we just let go this attitude and rather we start to concentrate on our own self, and start to think how we should lead our lives, that would be so great. It is something which i also need to work on.
