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.

Reciprocity is the key to dealing with different personalities

 

 

A decent person may be considered by some as weak person , so leniency is not right and on other hand violence and dealing with the same unpolite way is unpleasant too , almost every day we meet with different personalities and deal with them , whether we disagree or agree with them .

 

 

As we face through our career and our social life so many negative personalities around us and in all 

cases we have to deal with it tactfully so as not to drift behind these negative behaviors but without losing our good impression .

The art of dealing with others  advise us always to to deal similarly with different personalities.

  

 

Don’t settle for any abuse of others, your tolerance or leniency here will not maintain your relationship with others but It will let you lose your values in their eyes, do not accept any compromising for your rights , but you explaine your 

rejection to their override.

And here is your reaction depend in whome you are dealing with , whether family, friends or colleagues, you can be honest with who you’re dealing with and say directly that you reject this Act or use the dialog method ,and you can also just give that hard look and stop whatever you are doing And I mean here you can send messages indirectly as you can avoid dealing with one another for a period of time and this is other message.

  

 

And regarding those who do not lend you attention don’t bother , and those who speak with you coarsely be concise in talking to them , and do not compliment those who  do not compliment you.

 

 

These are what in my mind now depending on what i have learned so far …who knows may be life will show us more and more.

But till then stay decent .
