Paulo Coelho is the author of one of my favorite books, The Alchemist. The story is a journey of following your dreams and listening to your heart.
Coelho is from Brazil and before becoming a writer of spiritual and
inspirational fiction; he was a songwriter, actor, theatre director, and
journalist. Until finally while walking the Road of Santiago de
Compostela in northern Spain, he hit a turning point in his life and
went back to fulfilling his childhood dream of being a writer.
When you say "yes" to others,

But when the person looks back-she will hear her heart.
You drown not by falling into a river,
but by staying submerged in it.
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.
Each day is a different one,
each day brings a miracle of its own.
It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.
The biggest mistake of man is that he thinks
he doesn't deserve the good and the bad things from his life.
