Paulo Coelho

In Paulo Coelho’s novel “The Alchemist,” readers meet a young boy who has fallen in love with “a woman of the desert.” But the boy is afraid to take action on his heart’s desire because he might get hurt in return.

And of course, we may not be met with suffering after all, but we won't know until we muster the courage to go for what we want.
