Quotes from "The monk who sold his ferrari"

Here are couple of quotes from the book that caught my attention;

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.”

“Worry drains the mind much of it power and, sooner or later, it injures the soul”

“There are no absolutes”

“Luck is the marriage of preparation with opportunity”

“Success, like happiness, cannot be pursued. It must ensue. And it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself.”


The best, of course, is the one by Bernanrd Shaw that goes like....

"Life is no brief candle for me. It’s a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to the future generations."

If you are loking for science fiction or a fairy tale story, then this book s boring. If you are actually looking to learn saomething and develope yourself as a human being, then this book is an asset to you plan. It is a delightful awakening of the soul and a beautiful reading for those who constantely desire to get better in life.
