Thought for the Day

“When we strive to become better than we are,

~ Paulo Coelho

*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.
