In my World Literature classes, my students are currently reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I find this book to be amazing and I believe that there is something to be learned by everyone who reads it. There are also so many great quotes that can be found scattered throughout the novel. In fact, my students also have an extra credit opportunity where they can submit a quote that stood out to them as they read. For me there are many lines that stand out and I wanted to share one today:
But most important, he was able every day to live out his dream…It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
– Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
