2.1- Create a Class Discussion February 24, 2012

While reading The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, we considered whether his journey was a matter of the choices he made along the way, or merely a matter of fate. Robert Frost considers a similar theme in his poem, The Road Not Taken.  In this post, discuss your thoughts about fate vs. free will. Do you think that we are guided more by fate or more by our own free will? Have you had an experience where fate intervened? Would you rather be guided by fate, or would you rather have more control over your life and be guided by your own choices and decisions?

Your post is due on Friday February 3rd.

You must respond to at least 2 other students by Wednesday February 8th.

Watch the video, and look closely at the words of  Robert Frost’s famous poem:

The Road Not Taken

See what Paulo Coelho has to say about luck, coincidence, and faith:
