"He never realized that people are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of." From The Alchemist.
I was given this book some time ago and began reading it last night. I have heard about it frequently in talking with people and other reading. A Personal Legend is what we have always wanted to accomplish, but through life experience and caution from overprotective parents have pushed it aside for more practical matters. I like to think we can accomplish our Personal Legends and be practical at the same time. There is much time in the day to do what we need to do and want to do. I'm glad I've discovered that, finally.
