4.0 out of 5 stars For true fans, a treasure of a book. 17 Oct 2004
By Brida TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very beautiful little book. As a complete fan of Paulo Coelho, this book is a treasure to me. It brings together some of the best quotations from his work, plus some previously unpublished quotations. There are also beautiful drawings by Anne Kristin Hagesaether, to complete the package.
However, despite my total love for this book, I am not sure what other people, who have only read maybe a couple of Coelho's novels, would get from it. Maybe some would be able to take the quotations for what they are, but I have the fear that some may expect things from this collection which it just cannot give. As with many of his novels, you have to bring soemthing to the readings of his words. Think about what the quotation is saying, how it relates to your life.
For me, this really is something I will treasure, I hope others do too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Food for Thought 11 Dec 2007
By Grayson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Paulo Coelho can do no wrong in my book. This collection of thoughts from his books and other writings summarizes his beliefs on life, love, destiny etc. It provides the reader with food for thought and reminds us of the things we know about life somewhere in the back of our heads but tend to forget we know as life happens.
If you're not careful you can read this entire book in less than an hour, but if you do you'd have missed the point. I read, reflect and where appropriate, I write.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple wisdom 22 Dec 2008
By Enrique Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a superb collection of quotes from various Paulo Coelho's books that draws upon his wisdom. The book is broken down into sections that explore a theme for inspirational reading. This is the perfect companion for quite moments or those noisy moments because it brings peace of mind. This book is like a brain springboard, a cerebral trampoline, if you will, where the mind expands into mental gymnastics based on the simple treasures provided by the words of Mr.Coehlo. This is something everyone should read,it has something for everyone and something that most people will enjoy. This is a great gift book because it is so easy to read and enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life 10 Nov 2007
By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book has positive themes on life. For instance, dreams
nourish the soul. As such, the good fight is done in affirming
the authenticity of our dreams. The author asks that we
open our hearts to follow dreams to their ultimate fruition.
The author asks that we choose one path rather than scattering
our efforts over the many.

This in itself is good advice. The pilgrimage itself teaches
the best way to actualize our dreams. From a practical standpoint,
human beings search for dreams but toil to achieve them. Virtue is similar to courage for those who seek the spiritual path.
Our energy and knowledge are attributed to G-d.

The book is an excellent rendition for relating the spiritual realm
to the practical world we live in.

5.0 out of 5 stars getting an Idea who Paolo Coelho is 16 Jan 2008
By Michele Walz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my 29 year old brother who never reads. I thought he might like Paolo's ideas and philosophy, but would never be able to actually read one of his books. This one is perfect. I buy quite a lot in Germany and have also bought one of Paolo's CD's of his thoughts and short stories.
Well, my brother loved the gift, and thought he's give it a try
