Worldly Encounters- The Alchemist: Paolo Coelho

The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?

Probably it will be a book, ‘The Alchemist’ from Paolo Coelho. I was deeply touched reading the book, even for the second time, I would love to read it again and again all over again in the future. It reminds me of striving for a better future, venturing outside our comfort zone and pursue what really important to us.

It started when a boy, a shepard, going to a city to sell wool of his sheeps and encounter many challenges, hopes, dreams along the way. Adversities come as he go to places, but eventually he will be back to his real dream, his passion of having a treasure hunt.

For people who doesn’t even like to read a novel, I’d still recommend it.

    I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
