*~ The Moral Behind Paulo Coehlo’s book, “Veronika Decides to Die”~*
Young Veronika has everything a woman could ask for, beauty, youth, loving family, career… Yet Veronika has lost the kindling spark of life. For this reason, Veronika decides to die. She takes a handful of sleeping pills- and instead of landing in the grave, she lands herself into a mental hospital.
Paulo Coehlo, author of “The Alchemist” tells a convincing story, inspired by events in his own life. This book is a definite read because it questions the meaning of life, madness, character, liberation, and transformed opportunity. Coehlo writes of an awakening journey; a journey which makes us realize, each day of life is a blessing… Each one of us are different from one another, just as, each day should be. The “exploration” never ends.
Here are a few quotes from the book:
“People go against nature because they lack the courage to be different, and then the organism starts to produce Vitriol, or bitterness, as this poison is more commonly known.”
“We all live in our own world. But if you look up at the starry sky, you’ll see that all the different worlds up there combine to form constellations, solar systems, galaxies.”
