In The Archer, Paulo Coelho introduces us to the Way of the Bow, as a master of archery imparts practical lessons for life. Tesuya was once renowned for his prodigious gift with a bow and arrow, but he has since retired from public life. But when a young man comes asking questions, he begins to share what his art taught him—about risk-taking, courage, and embracing the unexpected.
Offering quotable thoughts on hard work, passion, purpose, thoughtfulness, failure, and daring to try, The Archer is filled with the generosity and grace that have defined Coelho’s previous work. Here are some of our favorite lines, paired with the stunning artwork that fills the pages of this remarkable book.
