A time; A choice

I was reading the book "Eleven Minutes" by Paulo Coelho, and I stumbled upon this short piece in one of my favourite chapters of the book.
It's from a Hebrew book, called  Ecclesiastes.

A time to be born, and a time to die; 

A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; 

A time to break down, and a time to build up; 

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; 

A time to mourn, and a time to dance; 

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 

A time to get, and a time to lose; 

A time to keep, and a time to cast away; 

A time to rend, and a time to sew; 

A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 

A time to love, and a time to hate; 

A time of war, and a time of peace. 

I'd recommend the book - it gives you an insight into the lives of prostitutes - and it's based on a true story. 


  1. There is a season for everything Sweta!
    Eleven Minutes is intriguing and I loved every bits of it.

    Ecclesiastes is one of my favorite chapters from the Bible. Keep reading!

    1. I enjoyed the book too! What are reading currently?
      I'm really intrigued by the whole concept of Christianity and the Bible - I want to read, explore - but time is the constraint :|

  2. You should explore the Bible then, don't miss out on Ecclesiastes chapter esp.
    Currently I am reading 'The Fountainhead' by Ayn Rand, a very powerful book.

    Keep Posting!

  3. The binaries are well suiting enough to say that world is full of choice. Haha.

    Interesting one Sweta!

    1. I like hoe you put it, Yeshi. Calls for a change in the title of the blog post :)
