Summary
-- The Alchemist. -- ? *? *? * ? July 14, 1099. Jerusalem awaits the invasion of the crusaders who have surrounded the city?s gates.

None of us can know what tomorrow will hold, because each day has its good and its bad moments. So, when you ask your questions, forget about the troops outside and the fear inside. Our task is not to leave a record of what happened on this date for those who will inherit the Earth; history will take care of that. Therefore, we will speak about our daily lives, about the difficulties we have had to face.”? The people begin with questions about defeat, struggle, and the nature of their enemies; they contemplate the will to change and the virtues of loyalty and solitude; and they ultimately turn to questions of beauty, love, wisdom, sex, elegance, and what the future holds. “What is success?” poses the Copt. “It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.”? ? * ?* ?* ? Now, these many centuries later, the wise man?s answers are a record of the human values that have endured throughout time. And, in Paulo Coelho?s hands, The Manuscript Found in Accra ?
