1. "You don't have to understand the desert all you have to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and you will see in it all the marvels of creation"
The Alchemist explains to Santiago that he doesn't have to understand the desert all Santiago has to do is contemplate a simple grain of sand, and he will see the creation.
2. "It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting"
Santiago is traveling to meet the girl he has been thinking about for a year. He is not sure if she will remember him or be married already, but he is excited to see her again. Life is always more exciting when you have something to look forward to. It is the uncertainty of life that brings risks and reward and what makes life an adventure.
3. "Don't think about what you've left behind"
"This quote is about Santiago letting go of love and also fear, but if that love was true it will come back to Santiago that's something that Santiago hopes.
4. "why do we have to listen to our heart"
I think people should listen to their heart for it can lead them on the right way, and also to allow people to heal. Another reason why we should listen to our hearts is to love others.
5. "When each day is the same as the next, It's because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives everyday the sun rises."
I like this quote a lot because I remember my grandfather telling me that when i fail on something it's okay because we all learn from our mistakes. I think people shouldn't be afraid to fail because they can learn from their mistakes, and also when the sun is rising they can think about the good things they did to help people.
6. "I can give you money you need to get back to your country, my son".
The Alchemist wants Santiago to go back to his country because the Alchemist knows what can happen to Santiago. I picked this quote because telling someone to go by to their country is for a good reason not a bad one, I liked this quote because the Alchemist doesn't want anything to happen to Santiago I think that's being a good friend and helpful. I think we should all be like that because we don't want to see people go thru stuff.
