How Very Appropriate.......


Grab the book closest to you. Turn to page 43. Go to the 4th line. Type that sentence into the comments box.


"They were all--herself included--cowards when the moment comes to change their fate"
-The Devil and Miss Pryn (Paulo Coelho)

I know there are some of you (especially the lucky one who actually gets to meet him!!) who would agree that Paulo Coelho is an amazing writer. His books have literally changed my life. Recently, I received The Devil and Miss Prym as a gift. And it was just what I needed to read:
"...there are two things that prevent us from acheiveing our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possibly by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune, when you least expected it. For at that moment, all our fears suddenly surface: the fear of setting off along a road heading who knows where, the fear of a life full of new challenges, the fear of losing forever everything that is familiar. People want to change everything and, at the same time, want it all to remain the same.."
