Would anyone know the difference?


Îmi place să urmăresc activitatea vestitului scriitor Paulo Coelho pe blogul său. Cu toate că am citit din operele sale doar una “11 minute”, am rămas frapată nu atît despre nuvela propriu-zisă ci de cuvintele folosite de scriitor pentru a defini cîte un sentiment, o trăire nouă… Preconizez să-i lecturez întregul palmares, deoarece am realizat că merită…

Am selectat o micuţă povestioară de pe blogul scriitorului, care m-a provocat la o banală meditaţie asupra conştiinţei umane şi a educării cultului personalităţii încă din fragedă copilărie…

A friend tells me the story of a father who took his two boys to play mini-golf. At the ticket office he wanted to know the price.

– Five coins for adults, three for those over six years. Under six years entry is free.

– One of them is three, the other seven. I’ll pay for the oldest.

– You are silly – said the ticket seller. You could have saved three coins, saying that the oldest was under six; I would never have known the difference.

– That may be, but the boys would know. And they would remember the bad example for ever.

  1. Imi place mult acest scriitor…..Alexandre Dumas este pe primul loc pentru mine, iar Victor Hugo si Paulo Colho pe locul doi!

    ce coincidenta…si eu am citit doar “11 minute” de acest scriitor..si am ramas profund impresionata..si cred ca la vara..cind voi avea mult timp liber..fara teme….o sa citesc si alte opere de acelasi scriitor..am mai privit “Veronica decide to die”…si mi-a placut..chiar nu ma asteptam la asa un sfirsit…iar istorioara chiar are un sens profund…
