In the early nineteenth century, a young man in London aspired to be a writer. 

But everything seemed to be against him. 

He had never been able to attend school more than four years. 

His father had been flung in jail because he couldn’t pay his debts, 

and this young man often knew the pangs of hunger. 

Finally, he got a job pasting labels on bottles of 

blacking in a rat-infested warehouse, 

and he slept at night in a dismal attic room with 

two other boys – guttersnipes from the slums of London. 

He had so little confidence in his ability to write that 

he sneaked out and mailed his first manuscript in the 

dead of night so nobody would laugh at him. 

Story after story was refused. 

Finally the great day came when one was accepted. 

True, he wasn’t paid a shilling for it, but one editor had praised him.

 One editor had given him recognition. 

He was so thrilled that he wandered aimlessly 

around the streets with tears rolling down his cheeks.

The praise, the recognition, that he received through 

getting one story in print, changed his whole life,

 for if it hadn’t been for that encouragement, 

he might have spent his entire life working in rat-infested factories. 

You may have heard of that boy. His name was Charles Dickens.

Eleven minutes

 







 Today I finished reading an Eleven Minutes for Paulo Coelho and this is a novel by Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho based on the experiences of a young Brazilian prostitute called Maria, whose first innocent brushes with love leave her heartbroken.  and it is based on real personalities ( and this is what attracted me more to the novel ) through pseudonyms and is currently living in France married living happily with her husband and two children as  the writer mentioned that in  his book at the end of the novel.



The story generally was  interesting and It took me three days to finish the book , English version was 320.. pages when I started the book from the beginning I was so excited to know the end of the story and  would it be the same ending of usual romantic movie as we know???!!!




It was enjoyable novel and exciting events although it stressed more about sexual pleasure frankly . but there were messages in between the lines, particularly in the diary of Maria.
 I liked what Maria wrote in her diary and how she was struggling to face the love of her life , the love she was looking for since her adolescence.

These are some Quotes i love from the novel :

“Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other. 

“Human beings can withstand a week without water, two weeks without food, many years of homelessness, but not loneliness. It is the worst of all tortures, the worst of all sufferings.” 

“I’m not a body with a soul, I’m a soul that has a visible part called the body”

“It is not time that changes man nor knowledge the only thing that can change someone’s mind is love.” 


Generally although i thought this novel going to be as a biography about young prostitute rather than to be a novel but i would recommend reading it , i feel it is really talking to the  soul rather than body.

Stay a live with soul full of love.
