Looking for Answers

I happened to have made an entry in the journal saying that looking for answers is futile, its like one never gets the answers when one is looking for and often ends up finding them when it could be of no use or doesn’t matter as one moves on.

I happen to have the book “The Fifth Mountain” besides me that I started reading. Funnily enough the note from the author talked about related to what I had written about.

Reminded me of this post.

P.S.: I was looking to read other books by Paul Coelho but none were available except this one.

I agree to a point - many questions we are not given answers to. But, I do believe we are given enough of the answer so that we can take the rest on a reasonable faith.
Great thought...I love it!

Read The Alchemist and didn't like it much - neither in terms of what the story had to say nor in the style it was said so no attraction to read any more of Paulo Coelho's other books.

Oh Paulo Coelho! Read his The Alchemist or The Zahir or The Flowing River or The Witch of Portobello or just about anything he has written. He writes LIFE! :)

Speaking of answers, I shall be in a quest forever!

@ Grayquill

I think so, but then they are nothing short of a riddle :)

@ Deepali

If you look at the underlying theme of what he writes may be you will understand but yes sometimes the narration can be a drag.

@ Shwetz

I AGREE!!

@ Rakesh

Liked only The Alchemist. Tried reading Veronica decides to die but found it too depressing.

So aint fond of Paulo's books!
