The Alchemist By Michael Crofford

"If he abandons that pursuit, it's because it wasn't true love... the love that speaks the language of the world"-Pualo Coelho. In the book Santiago is with the love of his life in the Oasis, but The Alchemist must remind him that if he can't let go and peruse his dream it wasn't real love. You should be able to leave and come back and share the same love you had when you left.
In today's world we can see this in the men and women that serve and protect us. When a husband or wife leave for a war and return to their families they should share the same love they had before leaving. Then you know that their love was true. This should be true of anyone that is leaving their loved ones and returning later on
"I began to make some money, but I could never bring myself to leave someone in charge of the shop." -Pualo Coelho. The crystal merchant is unable to let go of his fears and fulfill his personal legend because he fears letting someone else in charge.
If you fear loss of security, you will never truly be able to blossom into beauty and truly live. If you spend time in fear you will never see the beauty that life truly has to offer. If you care to much about risks you will never live.
"Don't give into your fears... if you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart"- Pualo Coelho. The Alchemist reminded Santiago that if he gave in to his fears he would no longer be able to speak to his heart. Then eventually lose himself.
If you give in to your fears, you will heart will be "Nevermore."- The Raven (Edgar Allan Poe). Your fears and what keeps you up at night is all in your head. Your heart is full of your hopes and your dreams and if you leave your hopes and dreams, you have lost your heart.
"When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person realize that dream."-Pualo Coelho. The king of Salem is speaking with Santiago about how the universe will help and guide you to realizing your true dream.
When you truly want something, all the world will conspire for you and to help you live out that dream. With hard work and determination your dream will come true. Never doubt yourself on the way there, just keep going and you will find your dream.
"The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and to never forget the drops of oil on the spoon."-Pualo Coelho. The wisest king of all kings was telling a boy that in order to truly live you must be responsible for yourself and all marvelous things throughout your life.
In order to truly live you must be responsible, take care of yourself, but live to the fullest at the same time. Don't worry so much about the risks that you miss out on life. Don't live so much that you forget about responsibilities and you end up struggling.
