. the boy . by the alchemist - Zayd

''If you know about love you must also know about the soul of the world, because it's made of love.''
This quote means a lot because the soul of the world can be everything you want it to be because anything and everything can be the soul of the world if it means something to you and it's the exact same thing for love since the loved one is means everything to you.
''If a man 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.''
I think that this quote means that if you know what you want in life and you study and learn about your personal legend you will achieve it but if you don't take the jump because your thinking about what will happen to you if you fail and not what will happen if you succeed.
''We make a lot of detours, but we're always heading for the same destination.'' (p80)
This quote is one of my favorite quotes from the book because sometimes we do make detours on the way to our personal legend while working hard and pursuing that same goal, some of us can even realize a second personal legend on our way to the first one.
''the secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops on the spoon''.(p32)
this quote represents my life because i have to do a lot and explore the world but i also have to focus on school at the same time because school is the drop that's on the spoon and i have to find a way to take care of the marvels and the drops.
"...people are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of."(p23)
this quote tells me that even if your 9 years old, 30 or 60 you can do it if you want it bad enough. of course it's easier to say "it's impossible" or "i can't" then actually waking up and start working on making that dream come true every single day.
