Friday Favorites | From The Alchemist

the alchemist

“The lake was silent for some time. Finally, it said:
“I weep for Narcissus, but I never noticed that Narcissus was beautiful.
I weep because, each time he knelt beside my banks,
I could see, in the depths of his eyes, my own beauty reflected.”
― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

    I read this book years and years ago. Thanks for refreshing my memory with a quote.

      This was my first Paul Coelho book, and I devoured it! This is just one of many beautiful passages.
