"You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his personal legend. If he abandons that pursuit, its because it wasn't true love...the love that speaks the language of the world." (124)
You don't know what it feels like when true is around until it is right in front of you. A personal legend is the same thing, you don't know when ,where or what it is but everyone has one.
"One afternoon, on a visit to his family, he had summoned up the courage to tell his father that he didn't want to become a priest and that he wanted to travel."
Telling your family what you really want to do in life is much better for you in the long run. They will give you their full support in whatever you choose to do.
