Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

 

The Alchemist is an international bestseller novel by Paulo Coelho which was first published in 1988. It has been translated into 67 distinct different languages and it has sold more than 30 million copies. This gave Coelho the position as the world’s most translated living author, according to the 2009 Guinness World Records.

The book’s main theme is about finding one’s destiny.

The Alchemist follows the journey of an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who believes in a recurring dream about a treasure in the Pyramids and decides to travel to Egypt to discover its meaning. Early into his journey, Santiago meets an old king, who tells him to sell his sheep to travel to Egypt and introduces him to the idea of a Personal Legend. Your Personal Legend “is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is”. He adds that “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”. This is the main core of the novel’s philosophy that plays all throughout Paulo Coelho’s book.

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

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

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

We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. Paulo Coelho

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. Paulo Coelho

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.

I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. 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 now. Paulo Coelho

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.
