Some quotes from The Alchemist

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
God has prepared a path for everyone to follow. You just have to read the omens that he left for you
Never stop dreaming. Follow the omens.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure
If you start out by promising what you don’t even have yet you’ll lose your desire to work towards getting it
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
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.

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
All people who are happy have God within them.
The journey towards the top of the mountain is always longer than you think. Don't fool yourself: the moment will come where what seemed to be close to you is in fact still very far away.
Your eyes show the strength of our soul.
Each thing has to transform itself into something better, and to acquire a new destiny.
When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.
Every search begins with beginner’s luck. And every search ends with victor’s being severely tested…. Darkest hour of the nigh came just before the dawn
When you posses great treasures within you , and try to tell others of them, seldom are you tested
