Quotes from the Alchemist


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

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him.

Change is possible at any time

People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.

At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.

Other People’s Opinions

If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

Don’t waste your time with explanations: people only hear what they want to hear.

It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.

Law of attraction

And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Failure & Uncertainty

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

The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.

Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.


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.
