About book: Favorite QuotesIt’s not when you start that makes your success in the world, but when you quit.Were we, also, hiking along some cosmic journal page? Were the events about us all part of a message we could understand, if only we found the right perspective from which to read them? Somehow, with our long series of miracles, I thought so.At last, the answer why. The lesson that had been so hard to find, so difficult to learn, came quick and clear and simple. The reason for problems is to overcome them. Why, that’s the very nature of man, I thought, to press past limits, to prove his freedom. It isn’t the challenge that faces us, that determines who we are and what we are becoming, but the way we meet the challenge, whether we toss a match at the wreck or work our way through it, step by step, to freedom.And behind it lies not blind chance but a principle that works to help us understand, a thousand "coincidences" and friends come to show us the way when the problem seems too hard to solve alone. Problems for overcoming. Freedom for proving. And, as long as we believe in our dream, nothing by chance.

Uno dei primi romanzi di Bach, che racconta un'estate passata in giro per gli States vivendo alla giornata e guadagnandosi il pane come "pilota da circo" con due amici: acrobazie in cielo, e voli per chiunque, a terra, sia disposto a pagare $3 per vedere dall'alto la propria città.Molto meno metafisico (o, a seconda di come la si vede, molto meno new age) dei romanzi per cui Bach è diventato famoso, Niente per caso lascia comunque intravedere la strada che l'autore intraprenderà con il successivo Il gabbiano Jonathan Livingston.Una lettura gradevole per appassionati di Bach... o del volo.

didn't like it quite as much as i like the first book i read by richard bach. and i'm an idiot and can't remember the name of that book. so this is kinda useless. but i think my friend nick would enjoy this book, so i'm going to give it to him. i think he's stuck in a different time. so if you ever feel out of place, like you're searching for a different place, a different time, where people took things a little slower, when things were more clean, honest, and pure... then you should probably read this book. it might inspire you to try to find that time and place.
