My response to Carpe Diem #1336 Elegance

Today is the last of December 2017’s regular episodes, in which we have explored the beauty of Paulo Coelho’s novels. Our inspirational quote is from The Witch of Portobello:

 “Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It’s the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable.”  (Source: The Witch of Portobello – Paulo Coelho)
