Quote of the Day – Paulo Coelho on Control and Fate


I’m a huge fan of Paulo and his books. Some of my favorites include The Alchemist (of course,) The Devil and Miss Prym, but one of the ones which rattled throughout my being was Veronika Decides to die. It reminded me very much of fate and control and how we perceive our life. It’s deep and worth a read. This quote is from the Alchemist.

At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie. – Paulo Coelho
