The Way I See It: Paulo Coelho

“Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure. Never forget your Personal Legend. Never forget your dreams. Your silent heart will guide you. Be silent now. It is the possibility of a dream that makes life interesting. You can choose between being a victim of destiny or an adventurer who is fighting for something important.”

–Paulo Coelho


Paulo Coelho has written many excellent books, but The Alchemist continues to bubble to the surface as his finest parable. It’s good to see this quote from the novel bubble up now and again as a reminder to us.

As I’ve said before, never stop dreaming.
