Like the Flowing River, Paulo Coelho

If this book gets translated into Bulgarian, it is becoming a hit. I came across it looking for something intriguing in English for my summer vacation.

A beautiful selection of short stories, reflections and folklore. This book reminds me of The Little Prince – fairy tales you can read aloud to your kids OR philosophical adventure you should read alone and think about.

page 188:

„A man asked my friend  Jamie Cohen:’What is the human being’s funniest characteristic?’

Cohen said: ‘Our contradictoriness. We are in such a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. We make ourselves ill earning money, and then we spend our money on getting well again. We think so much about the future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present, nor the future. We live as if we were never going to die, and die as if we had never lived’ „.
