Ana recently gave an interview to Novosti newspaper in Serbia that focused on her love of literature.
The following is a translated extract from the question-and-answer session:
"Only he who knows the destination knows the way" – Lao Tzu. You have chosen this statement for your Twitter profile.
I like it because it reminds me that people nowadays often judge others too much. It is ungrateful to analyze and criticize a person you don’t know at all, as it's impossible to know all the details from that person’s life. Everybody has the right to have their own wishes and goals and follow their own path, which they believe is the right path. When you have your own goal, you are the one making a path towards it!
You have mentioned that The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is one of the best books you have read. The author says, at the very beginning, that people are masters of their own destiny and that there are no tasks or things that can’t be solved. Do you agree?
Yes, I do. I think that when you honestly want something sincerely and when you give your best to achieve it, that is when you can make it! Sometimes we are not conscious of how strong we really are.
"When every day seem identical, it is because we have stopped noticing the good things that are happening in life" – Paulo Coelho wrote in The Alchemist. How closely do you agree with this thought?
We easily fall into monotony, life is today like a roller coaster, so I often have the feeling that every day is about businesses and obligations and that we have no time for ourselves. It is important to find half an hour or an hour daily for yourself, to stop and notice the nice things that are actually everywhere around.
