One of my favorite books, The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho. This is such a beautiful book. Not only is it inspiring, but it also teaches you the virtue of patience and how it pays off when trying to reach your dreams.
Annotation: The inventor of the world's first clock is punished and banished for centuries. With his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom and a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time.
