My review comments -> Paulo Coelho – The Witch Of Portobello

Few good lines, that I really liked are:
a) Page 18 -> "The best way to know who we are is often to find out how others see us."
b) Page 78 -> "God hid the most important things from the wise because they can not understand what is simple."
c) Page 93 -> "What is a teacher? It isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows."
d) Page 105 -> "Music only exists because the pauses exists, and sentences only exists because the blank spaces exists."
e) Page 115 -> "Your wounds will help you."
f) Page 131 -> "When I die, bury me standing, because I've spent all my life on my knees !"


I really like the way, the writer tell the story or biography of the character. It is one of the best way to narrate about someone. "The best way to know who we are is often to find out how others see us."

Hello!
I also loved this book! Do you know Paulo is launching this experiment where he is inviting his readers to adapt the book to the screen?
