"When you want something with all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the Soul of the World…. when you love someone with all your heart, that’s when you are transformed."
"Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive… and it has a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognize that it is working for us…. we continue to change as change is the nature of man. No one is "just this way". That is who they are today – it will not be who they are tomorrow."
— Paulo Coelho

"Don’t think about what you’ve left behind" The alchemist said to the boy as they began to ride across the sands of the desert. "If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return."
— Paulo Coelho
