مرّ وقتٌ طويل .. منذ وقعت عيناي على هذا الكتاب ..

اليوم .. قلّبتُ صفحاته .. وقفتُ برهة بين دفتيه .. اطلعتُ على أيامي معه وثارت في نفسي أشجان وأحزان ..

هذا الكتاب .. هو كالدليل .. يضيء في قلبك نور .. ويذكي في نفسك أشياء رائعة وراقية ..

عبارة عن مجموعة من النصوص .. تقرؤها .. مرة .. مرتين .. عشر .. وفي كل مرة تحس أن المكان ينير ويشع .. وفي كل مرة تحس في قلبك الراحة وتقر عينك وتبرد ..

باولو كويلو في هذه التحفة الفنية الراقية .. استطاع أن يتوغل نحو الأعماق ويسبرها ويكتشف أسراراً خطيرة في شخصية الإنسان ال

(( أود أن أعرف ماهو المضحك لدى الكائنات البشرية ))...
فقال الحكيم : إنهم يفكرون دائما بعكس مالديهم .
وهم مستعجلون للكبر, ثم يتحسرون على طفولتهم الضائعة.
يفقدون صحتهم لكي يملكوا المال ..
ثم يفقدون مالهم من أجل امتلاك الصحة ...
يفكرون بكثير من القلق في المستقبل

Recommends it for: be carried anywhere you go and to be readed as your new experience in life
There are a lot of insights of human life that I can learn from this amazing book...I love the way he wrote all of the stories which were contained of enchanting messages for anyone who read it, especially me. It helps me smile, wrinkle my eye brows whenever I didn't get the point yet of one story, helps me passing my day, even when I got stuck by the traffic jam.
In short, I must say that this book is loveable...and I love it.

I will admit one thing,if not for my brother , i would not have read this book or for the matter any books of his.
My friends used to recommend his books, but i had always stayed away from his books. From what i have heard, his books always sounded Philosophical, which for me is the other name for Boring . I have never been into books of that category. I stay away from Self Help books. I tried reading it once since an avid reader should read all types of Genre. But sadly , it resulted in a "read

Like the Flowing River is a collection of Paulo Coelho’s stories and articles which were published in different newspapers around the world.

Like the Flowing River is definitely one of Coelho’s best, for me. It contained his thoughts and reflections on different things—from the story of the pencil to a piece of bread that fell wrong side up. I’m amused at how he sees the Universe. How he comes up with various realizations out of the simplest things that happen in his life.

This proves that Paulo C

Each Christmas, we have an exchange of gifts. The actual exchange of gifts take place during the annual Christmas party. Anyway, all employees were asked to create a *wish list*. The wish list contained all (or some) of the things that we would like to receive for Christmas. Last Christmas (2011), I was collecting Nicholas Sparks' books. This Christmas (2012), I was collecting Paulo Coelho books. So, naturally, I wrote down *Paulo Coelho books* on my wish list. To cut the story short, I received ...more

ما بين حكاية الموت الذي كان يرتدي المنامة وحكاية الشر الذي كان يريد أن يفعل الخير، صادفتني رسالة إلى جورج بوش ونص عن فن التجريب وآخر عن التصرف بدافع , وغرقت لأكثر من ثلاثة أيام من بعد قرائتي لكتاب كالنهر الذي يجري لباولو كويلهو في دائرة من التأملات ودوامة من الأفكار ..

من المعروف عن باولو كويلهو أنه كثيراً ما يلبسك أجنحته ويسمح لك بالطيران (لصفحات) في عالمه، الذي يبدو تماماً كعالمك من حيث مظهره الخارجي لكنك ستدرك لاحقاً بأنك أبداً لم تراه في السابق كما يبدو لك الآن..

Oh, why do I even bother anymore with Coelho? His books are easy (read: shallow) reads but leave a bad aftertaste, much like how I feel after I'm done bingeing on junk food. Write about spirituality in a stripped, simplified way, sprinkle in some pseudo-intellectualism and voila - you get a world famous author with little substance. Coelho should be taught two things: one is that nuanced writing is a much better approach in philosophizing, and two, it would do the readers good if he could tone d ...more

I never thought that a man can really be so profound and inspiring even in his daily life, until I read Paulo Coelho’s Like the Flowing River.

Before I read this book, I have read Coelho’s book “The Alchemist”, and just credited him for a wonderful work of art. But after reading this book, I discovered that Coelho is not only a masterful writer but also a man full of wisdom in real life.

Like the Flowing River is a gleaning of accounts of his experiences, stories he had been told and thoughts than

Tal y como su subtítulo tan bien expresa (Pensamientos y reflexiones 1998-2005), los textos que nos vamos a encontrar aquí son de temática variada; a veces incluso parece que no existe ninguna relación posible entre ellos. Todos y cada uno (los textos, relatos o episodios de este libro, Ser como el río que fluye, de Paulo Coelho) llevan, eso sí, la impronta siempre trascendental y profunda tan marca de la casa y que tanto ha aportado al pensamiento y la filosofía actuales.

الكتاب تضمن نصوصًا نشرها الكاتب قبلًا في صورة مقالات في الفترة بين عامي 1998 و 2005، وقد تم تجميعها وإعادة إصدارها في هذا الكتاب .

بين موضوعات عدَّة، وقضايا متنوعة ومختلفة، وأفكار مُلهِمة ومفيدة، وقصص مسلية وممتعة، وردت بين ثنايا الحكايات، ووجدتني مستمتعًا بها وبالإلهام الذي تعبِّر عنه، يمكنني أن أصف هذا الكتاب بالجيد .

وكعادة "كويليو" في معظم كتاباته يمكن اعتبار هذا الكتاب دعمًا لمسألة الروح في رحلة الإنسان علي الأرض، فالكاتب هنا يقدم اعتناءه الخاص ورعايته المعتادة لقضية الروح، فنجد أغلب حديثه مُ

My friend told me to read this book about a year ago but I was never really interested in reading. I never found the right book to read. This summer I read a book for Paulo Coelho and I loved it. So I kept buying his books and reading them. His books are really different. They are all about life and how we choose our path. Some are all about love, destiny, and death. After I read most of his books I decided to start reading this book ''Like the Flowing River''. It made a great impact on the way ...more

In this book Paulo Coelho describes his experiences of life and tries to give inspiration to readers. It looks like Gulistan of Paulo Coelho to be exact. I found nothing extraordinary in it except some of his stories.

One of his stories is as follows:

“A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked:

‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:

I don't know how to explain my love for this book. It was a surprised gift from a new lovely friend, and I brought it with me to a short vacation in a beautiful island. Early in a morning, I had a long swim on the deserted beach, then lied down under the shade of almond trees, reading the book, pondering my life, then swimming again. In front of me, on the other side of the sea, Hongkong city resting quietly, glittering in the morning sun rays shining through grey clouds. What a wonderful moment ...more

I have witnessed many storms in my life. Most storms have taken me by surprise, and so I've had to learn - and very quickly too - to look farther off, to understand that I cannot control the weather, to practise the art of patience, and to respect nature's fury. Things do not always happen the way I would have wanted, and it is best that I get used to that.

I had read The Alchemist and Brida by Paulo Coelho before and had loved them both. Those books left me with messages that changed my life. Given my previous experiences with Coelho's books, I was pretty excited about Like a Flowing River too, until I read a few reviews (mostly negative) of the book. I nevertheless did not put the book away and I am glad I didn't.

Yes, there are a few thoughts in the book that give you a blah feeling, however the book has some hidden gems of inspiration that make

This is a great book of meditations large and small in the form of stories and true vignettes from the life of the author. I recommend keeping it on your nightstand and reading just one or two stories before you go to bed--you'll sleep well. If you are familiar with Coelho's works, you'll recognize the "warrior of the light" and the reference to "personal legends" (see The Alchemist). The collection is a testament to Coelho's expansive horizon (see The Valkyries: An Encounter with Angels) and wi ...more

كالنهر الذي يجري ..
أول كتاب قرأته لباولو .. وقد كنت متابع له كثيراً في السابق
أقرأ مقتبسات من مقالاته وبعض الأقوال

كالنهر الذي يجري .. هو نهر يجري ولا يتوقف أيضاً
مقالات كتبت بين عامي ١٩٩٨ و ٢٠٠٥ تحمل في طياتها قيم إنسانية كثيرة جداً
وهي مرحلة مهمة في حياة باولو الكاتب .. بحيث تفسر لنا فلسفته ومدى جمال حرفة في هذه المقالات

الكتاب جميل جداً / يستحق القراءة مرات عديدة

I did not like this book not only because it's naive and focuses too much on the little things but also because I was shocked by how empty and yet braggy the life of a best-selling author is. I just wasted 4 hours of my life reading (and skipping) useless crap while I might have just skipped to the end; Some Final Prayers; merely because it's the only page that's worth reading.

Short stories and memoirs from the author.Personally I liked the warrior of light stories.It is of a kind of mood booster and not a book to be taken along a long drive,unless you have some serious soul searching to do.

لقد حوى هذا الكتاب مقتطفات من حياة باولو كويللو هذا الكاتب الذى أثر فى مئات بل وىلاف القراء فى أنحاء العالم

Before dedicating his life completely to literature, he worked as theatre director and actor, lyricist and journalist. In 1986, PAULO COELHO did the pilgrimage to Saint James of Compostella, an experience later to be documented in his book The Pilgrimage. In the following year, COELHO published The Alchemist.
