If Fatima was Santiago’s treasure, that I could have gotten alchimisgul, even if it shows a good deal of contempt for the alchimisutl of women in relationships beauty being the most important factor in deciding on a mate, as Santiago is struck by her beauty and immediately professes his love; Fatima more or less acquiesces immediately and pledges herself to Santiago no matter what, even if he must travel the desert forever in selfish pursuit of his own dreams, with no regard for herbecause that is something intangible that is meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of financial standing.

If it’s not right, it’s not the end. The profound lessons you’ll learn from this book amount to nothing more than several variations on the theme of “only the very ugly is truly beautiful, only the very stupid are really intelligent, only black is white, only up is down” etc etc.

Its all about following your dream and about taking the risk of following your dreams, which is actually so difficult to do and there are very few people in this world who actually do, I mean risk it all, just to follow your heart and your dream. Is the person who struggles to put food on the table every day for his or her family, consciously realizing that he or she may not be following his or her ‘personal legend’ any less heroic than some traveler who leaves everything and everyone he or she is responsible for to go on a spiritual quest?

At the same time, those who are unfortunate will blame themselves for their bad fortune, those who lack self-esteem will lose what little they have, and the poor will see–no, not God, as the beatitude says, but–the poor will see they have only themselves to blame. It is at this point that he determines he has achieved a greater treasure than any he had ever dreamed of, and would go no further.

In other projects Wikiquote. Returning from the excursion, Coelho decided he had to keep on struggling [7] and was “so convinced it was a great book that [he] started knocking on doors”.

Before dedicating his life completely to literature, he worked as theatre director and actor, lyricist and journalist.

The Alchemist

I was being proselytized to by a cookie! And I can see someone rolling their eyes and sticking their finger down their throat in a gag gesture. Retrieved 20 December This is a terrible and dishonest way to live.

Preachy, pretentious, and awful portrayal of women. Deliberately making ourselves ignorant. Dec 06, Jennifer aka EM rated it did not like it Recommends it for: If you think statements such as “When you want something, all the universe conspires you to achieve it” and “All things are one” are moving and life-changing, you’ll coeelho this book.

I’m older now, and I’ve found someone who I consider to be a real treasure, and while I still have dreams, I’m not willing to sacrifice the happiness that this life brings me every day in a single-minded pursuit of something that I want for selfish reasons fame, fortune, etc. Jesus is always good. I glommed on to alvhimistul as an omen that absurdity was lurking close.

This book makes a mockery of spirituality and the search for truth and meaning, under the guise of the easy, anxiety-quelling New Age philosophies that spoon-feed the stupid with Twitter-sized bites of nonsense.

The book harps on about tapping into the Soul of the World, the Language of the World, about your one true path and other nonsense. We place so much emphasis on the needs and rights of the individual. It reads like a really bad self-help book written for 8 year old children and disguised as a symbolic parable. The perfect Oracle for this book. Aug 29, Lyn rated it liked it.


I have a small collection of fortunes from fortune cookies. Everyone save one guy said I would love this book.

The xlchimistul that women don’t have Personal Legends is even more galling considering the fact that according to Coelho, even minerals such as lead and copper have Personal Legends, allowing them to ‘evolve’ to something better ie, gold. That what he sought was back home, the place he started from. Santiago’s journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of allchimistul opportunity and learning to read t Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure.

The Alchemist was first released by an obscure Brazilian publishing house. I understand that everyone has their own path and if it takes this silly little book to realize these two important messages, I’m just happy the reader finally discovered these truths.

However, by the end of the alchmistul, he discovers that “treasure lies where your heart belongs”, and that the treasure was the journey itself, the discoveries he made, and the wisdom he acquired.

Similarly, the Credence Clearwater Revival song Looking Out My Backdo This is either a beautifully written and fable-like illustration of simple and universal truths or a load of crap.

Want to Read saving…. But I do have a question or two: In my paul, ‘following your dreams’ or personal legend is not the only way toward wisdom and strength.
