Thought for the Day
“There is only one thing
that makes a dream impossible to achieve:
the fear of failure.”
~ Paulo Coelho
Born August 24, 1947 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
A Brazilian lyricist and novelist. As a teenager, Coelho wanted to become a writer. Upon telling his mother this, she responded with “My dear, your father is an Engineer. He’s a logical, reasonable man with a very clear vision of the world. Do you actually know what it means to be a writer?” After researching, Coelho concluded that a writer “always wears glasses and never combs his hair” and has a “duty and an obligation never to be understood by his own generation,” amongst other things.
