The Alchemist- Paulo Coelho


My Favourite Quotes from an inspiring book, The Alchemist..

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.


There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.


If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man...Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now.

And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant. There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.

He knew that his love for her would enable him to discover every treasure in the world.

The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better. 

When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure. You've got to find the treasure, so that everything you have learned along the way can make sense.

You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his destiny. If he abandons that pursuit, it's because it wasn't true love … the love that speaks the language of the world.

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.

People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them.

Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him.

Wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

 

When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.
