Inspirations: Quote from Aleph

"Only mediocrity is sure of itself, so take risks and do what you really want to do.  Seek out people who aren't afraid of making mistakes and who, therefore, do make mistakes.  Because of that, their work often isn't recognized, but they are precisely the kind of people who change the world and, after many mistakes, do something that will transform their community completely."   - From the book, Aleph by Paulo Coelho


  1. Love this quote already! I still haven't picked up a copy of Aleph, but I loved The Alchemist, so I need to get on that! :D

  2. Thanks for visiting my site Audrey. The Alchemist is also one of my favorite books, I don't even know how many times I have already read it. :-) Aleph, however, is more like Paulo Coelho's autobiography. It's a good read too.
