“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
The Alchemist is a childhood favorite of mine for its fantastic adventure and words of wisdom. It was one of the few school-assigned books that I actually finished😬
All it takes is one book to activate that magical power of reading for a young person. The Alchemist was one of those books for me. Although I didn’t like it as much when I reread it recently, The Alchemist still holds a special place in my library. It’s always a great book to talk about with friends too!
