Quotes from The Alchemist

These are my favorite quotes from book of The Alchemist. Just want to share it 🙂

“At the point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible. They are not afraid to dream and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their destiny”

“It’s a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your destiny. It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on the earth”

“Because you are trying to realize your destiny. And you are at the point where you’re  about to give it all up”

“Not always in this way, but I always appear in one form or another. Sometimes I appear in the form of a solution or a good idea. At other times, at crucial moment, I make it easier for things to happen. There are other things I do, too, but most of the time people don’t realize I’ve done them.” – The King of Salem

“He had to choose between something he had become accustomed to and something he wanted to have” – Narrator

“It’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”

“A certain shopkeeper sent his son to learn about the secret of happiness from the wisest man in the world. The lad wandered through the desert 40 days and finally came upon beautiful castle, high atop a mountain. It was there that the wise man lived.”

“I’m already used to the way things are. Before you came, I was thinking about how much time I had wasted in the same place, while my friends had moved on, and either went bankrupt or did better than they had before. It made me very depressed. Now, I can see that it hasn’t been too bad. The shop is exactly the size I always wanted it to be. I don’t want to change anything, because I don’t know how to deal with change I’m used to the way I am” – Crystal Merchant.

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” – Fatima

“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”
