More wisdom for today

Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him.
We… seldom say much about those treasures, because people no longer want to go in search of them. Later, we simply let life proceed, in its own direction, toward its own fate. But, unfortunately, very few follow the path laid out for them- the path to their Personal Legends, and to happiness. Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed, to be a threatening place.

- Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist

(J tells me he's reading The Alchemist in Buenos Aires. Nothing could surprise me more.)
