“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person realize his dream.”
(Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist, 1986)
Was the optimist, motivators' darling Coelho...
"A soul washed and saved is a soul doubly in danger, for everything in the world conspires against such a soul."
(John Steinbeck, Tortilla Flat, 1935)
...answering to the ever satirist Steinbeck? ;))
