A Brazilian novelist and lyricist, who has won millions of hearts across the globe. His words and phrases are so meaningful that we use it in our everyday conversation, without realising. Yes, I am talking about Paulo Coelho, the one writer who suddenly made us very matured and changed our perspective. I bet, there isn’t anyone who haven’t read or did not know about The Alchemist man. And once who has read that book, their life has changed forever. He is the alchemist who transformed lives with words!
I read his book when I was in school and since that day my view towards life changed. I grew to be more settled, developed patience and felt the meaning of love. His books, words, phrases always inspired people to believe in oneself, believe in magic. Guess he is the magician who has done magic with beautiful theories of life in a simple language. Love is another thing Coelho always trusted. He said in all his books million times that our existence is to love and to be loved. All his books, from The Alchemist, Veronica Decides to Die, Winner Stands Alone, Eleven Minutes, Brida, Aleph and many more are coined on a central character of women. He always portrayed woman as someone who is capable of doing anything and transforming anything. If you are feeling low, read his books to be inspired.
There are hardly any people who do not admire him or his wisdom. It takes a complete man, who has seen life and lived it fully to write such beautiful and touching verses.
