The Aleph

I'm a huge Paulo Coelho's fan. Like, who doesn't?
I wonder why his writings could be so easy, provoking, & simply mind blowing. Seriously.
Am currently reading his latest book -The Aleph.

"We learn in the past, but we are not the result of that. We suffered in the past, loved in the past, cried, and laughed in the past, but that's of no use to the present. The present has its challenges, its good and bad side. We can neither blame nor be grateful to the past for what is happening now. Each new experience of love has nothing whatsoever to do with past experiences. It's always new."

"We are not the person other people wish we were. We are who we decide to be. It's always easy to blame others. You can spend your entire life blaming the world, but your successes or failures are entirely your own responsibility. You can try to stop time, but it's a complete waste of energy."

Feelin like quoting every words in the book.
You're the God, Mr. Coelho.
