The example changing PAULO COELHO's world is his successful novel about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain, to the Egyptian desert, in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king and an alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. What starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within. Lush, evocative and deeply humane, the story of Santiago is an eternal testament to the transformational power of human dreams and the importance of listening to our hearts. In relation to Paulo's quote, I guess what this all means is that the real examples of "changed" come from the heart within: And in Paulo's case, his within is a fictional novel.
