Favorite Quote: “You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say.” — Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist. This book alone teaches its readers powerful lessons that the idea of “fear” may be greater than the actual obstacle and to focus on your own happiness while living and learning in the present. This quote is a reminder that life never shows a clear path for individuals, there are always surprises but if you follow your heart, everything will fall into place eventually.
