Top Ten Amazing Quotes from Paulo Coelho’s Bestseller: The Alchemist

Published

on

The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, a Brazilian Author (Net worth – 500 million USD), is an international bestseller. The book has sold more than 160 million copies across the globe.

I always wondered why many successful people, including Will Smith, recommended the book.

Despite the recommendations, I never read the book because I seldom read fiction. However, I decided to read it when Menna Van Prag, an English Novelist, mentioned it in an interview where she was talking about how people can realize their dreams.

I finished reading the book in two days and I knew why people praised it.

This book is for dreamers, and its main message is that we will achieve our dreams if we go after them. It’s a very inspiring book, and it reinforced my self-confidence.

I felt I must share with you the most remarkable quotes I noted from the book. Hope you will love them.

  1. ‘It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.’ – Paulo Coelho
  2. ‘If God leads the sheep so well, then he can also lead a man.’ – Paulo Coelho
  3. ‘Intuition is a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life, where histories of all people are connected, and we are able to know everything because it’s all written there.’ – Paulo Coelho
  4. ‘Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.’ – Paulo Coelho
  5. ‘When you want something with all your heart, that’s when you are closest to the Soul of the World. It’s always a positive force.’ – Paulo Coelho
  6. ‘It’s only those who are persistent and willing to study things deeply, who achieve the Master Work.’ – Paulo Coelho
  7. ‘Live in the moment because if good things are coming they will be a pleasant surprise, and if bad things are, and you know in advance, you will suffer greatly before they even occur.’ – Paulo Coelho
  8. ‘Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return.’ – Paulo Coelho
  9. ‘It’s true that life is generous to those who pursue their dreams/personal legends.’ – Paulo Coelho
  10. ‘People need not to fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want. We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it’s our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same hand.’ – Paulo Coelho

In his book, Jeff Goins debunks the idea that artists starve. He provides several examples of artists that make money from art, and enlightens us about the factors that make artists succeed. The book is an inspiring read for everyone who wants to be an artist of any kind.

I gathered the following amazing quotes from Jeff Goins’ book.

  1. ‘We can go in the direction of what is expected of us. Or, we can enter a world of possibility and reimagine our future.’

  3. ‘You can do extraordinary things when you are patiently persistent.’
  4. ‘Over the course of a lifetime, we may find ourselves facing new challenges at every turn, and when we do, we must remember that we are never done becoming who we are.’
  5. ‘What’s out there, however scary it may be, is almost certainly better than staying where we are now.’
  6. ‘This is the rule of creative theft, which says greatness doesn’t come from a single great idea or eureka moment. It comes from borrowing other people’s work and building on it.’

  8. ‘What will make you stand out from the crowd is not just the audacity to ask for help but the humility to learn and act.’
  9. ‘Stubbornness can be an essential ingredient in making a living off your art. When you harness your strategic stubbornness, you give the world a reason to believe in your work.’
  10. ‘When we allow ourselves to be teachable, we attract those who would influence us and help our work spread.’
  11. ‘Employers become patrons when we begin to see them not as obstacles to the work we want to do but as a way of funding it.’
  12. ‘A willingness to step out of our comfort zone is the first step towards finding the place and the people who will help our work thrive.’
  13. In every failure and disappointment, there is an opportunity to either give in to frustration or see such shortcomings as practice.’
