Alchemist

by Coelho, Paulo

This book is a fable, told in simple language, of an Andalusian shepherd boy who forsakes his comfortable, predictable life and follows his dream.

"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. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now."
