    This should probably go in the lounge, but I'll put it here in the make money section. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is full of quotable quotes, and here's my favorite one.

    And then this one, supposedly an Arab proverb,

    So when it involves money, always take calculated risks. There is something called the Beginners Luck, everything would seem perfect initially until the luck drains out and reality takes over.

    I think the book is a must read for every entrepreneur, newbies and pros alike.

    The first quote is awesome, not heard that before. Might have to pick this book up.

    The problem with some books like these is that half of the quotes just seem like common-sense made to sound fancy IMO.

    The book is awesome and is one of my favorite books. I like it that it's about searching for happiness and being successful right where you are. As I remember, the protagonist of the book was traveling to Africa just to get the treasure, just to find out that it was right under the cottage he was sleeping in or something like that. That's awesome too.

    Coelho is a master of writing, I suggest everyone to read his other works as well!

    I actually believe that prab1996's quote comes from Coelho's later book, 'Love Letters from a Prophet'. Might just be paraphrased though.

    Love this one man, I think life is more about building yourself as a person rather than just building your bank account
