i love that book. there are so many great lines in that book. paulo coehlo really is a very good writer. i would like to share this line with you, which i think is very related to the line that you mentioned. although this one is not from a book, but a tv show. it came from smallville, and uttered by jonathan kent. 'letting go is the only way to move forward'.

Hi, Really great lines. I also say something similar to my students. A person can't look back and go forward at the same time. Even if he manages to do that, there is no doubt that he will stumble and fall numerous times and his aim would farther away from him. But that doesn't mean that we should make the past null and void. Our present and even our future is the result of the decisions we've made in the past. What we should do is that we should just analyze our past and then reach some conclusion and fix some strategy. But then we stick to the conclusion and give up the memory and then move forward. Thanks God bless you

Thank you I needed that. I have been so angry at my family for over a week. They won't pull that again, I will look forward cautiously.
