Paulo Coelho has always wanted to be a ‘write’ his dream was always to be a complete writer, but his family was Catholic and were strict about religion and faith. Paulo’s life may well be itself worthy of a homely book. In his teens, he was admitted to a psychiatric institute by his parents because of his rebellious behavior as they thought it was a sign of madness.
He was being traumatized by parental guidance. Paulo said in an interview “It wasn’t that they wanted to hurt me, but they didn’t know what to do… They did not do that to destroy me, they did that to save me“. At his parent’s wish, he abandoned his dream of becoming a writer and enroll in a law school.

After his journey, his life was completely changed and he decided to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a writer. Now, brace yourself here you will find the best The Alchemist quotes Paulo Coelho.
