Transcript of The Alchemist

Discussion Director
Text to self
"This is why alchemy exist," the boy said. So that everyone will search for his treasure, find it, and then want to be better than he was in his former life. Lead will play its role until the world has no further need for lead; and then lead will have to turn itself into gold." (150)

"The boy stood up shakily, and look once more at the pyramids. They seemed to laugh at him, and he laughed back, his heart bursting with joy."(163)
Text to the world
"It is we who nourish the soul of the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. And that's where the power of love comes in. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are." (151).
Text to text (Bible)
"But that the hand had a reason for all of this, and that only the hand could perform miracles, or transform the sea into a desert... or a man into the wind. Because only the hand understood that it was a larger design that had moved the universe to the point at which six days of creation had evolved into a Master Work." (152).
Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything... that's the point at which most people give up. It's the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared in the horizon' (132)
"It was the pure language of the World. It required no explanation, just as the universe need none as it travels through endless time." (93)
"To die tomorrow was no worse than dying on any other day. Every day was there to be lived or to mark one's departure from this world. Everything depended on one word: 'Maktub'."
