Our Favourite Quotes from The Alchemist

Today marks the 25th anniversary of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, a timeless story that has touched the hearts of over 140 million readers worldwide. The Alchemist follows Santiago as he travels from his home in Spain, to the markets of Tangiers, and into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter with the alchemist awaits him. Most importantly, though, Santiago’s journey reminds readers about the importance of following your dreams and listening to your heart.

Below are some of our favourite quotes from this modern classic…

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

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times are to get up eight times.”

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

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

“No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world.”

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

“I love you because the whole universe conspired to help me find you.”
