"What is the world's greatest lie?" the boy asked, completely surprised.From The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, English translation by Alan R Clarke
"It is this: That at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what is happening to us, and our lives becomes controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie"
I have read it before, but then in Swedish. It is a different book in English. And before I am done, I have to learn Brazilian/Portuguese, because this is a gem I want to read in the original version.
And I for one don't believe in fate. At least not completely. I believe in continuing to change your own life and impact it, it ain't over 'til it's over, it's not over as long as I still can draw breath. As long as I can breath, as long as I live, that's how long I can change what I want to and that is how long I will, I will forever continue to explore, because the day I do, that is the day that I don't want to be here anymore...
