Book Title: The Alchemist

Author: Paulo Coelho

Book Description:

This book is like a refreshing breeze that carries the best smells, it is the kind voice of a trusted mentor that carries sage and wise advice, it is a warm, comforting hand of a loved one that calms and sustains us. 

So many of the phrases in this book sustain me in the good and the challenging times -- I hope it will do the same for you.

"When each day is the same as the next, it's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises." Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.
