Transcript of personal legend

“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to
realize his dream,” said the alchemist, echoing the words of the old king. The boy
understood. Another person was there to help him toward his Personal Legend." (111)
Quote #2
Quote #1
" It's a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your personal legend. it prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It's your mission on earth." (22)
Quote #4
“If a person is living out his Personal Legend, he knows everything he needs to know.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve; the fear of failure.”(123)
Quote #3
“During the third year, the omens will continue to speak of your treasure and your
Personal Legend.... But
many times you’ll walk the sands of the desert, thinking that maybe you could have
left...that you could have trusted more in your love for Fatima. Because what kept you at the oasis was your own fear that you might never come back. At that point, the omens
will tell you that your treasure is buried forever." (119-120)
By Henry and Hazel
The Alchemist: Personal Legends

Quote #5
"It’s true that everything has its Personal
Legend, but one day that Personal Legend will be realized. So each thing has to
transform itself into something better, and to acquire a new Personal Legend, until,
someday, the Soul of the World becomes one thing only.” (127)
