    It is a fun read about this book. So much you can learn from this story. Don't stop believing about something that you want to achieve it.

    “Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked, when they had made camp that day.

    “Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you’ll find your treasure.”

    “But my heart is agitated,” the boy said. “It has its dreams, it gets emotional, and it’s become passionate over a woman of the desert. It asks things of me, and it keeps me from sleeping many nights, when I’m thinking about her.”

    “Well, that’s good. Your heart is alive. Keep listening to what it has to say.”

    When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for a shepherd to achieve.”

    Everyone has his or her own way of learning things,
