Food For Thought – The Alchemist

I took this photo at Uluru, NT, Australia, after watching how the sun woke earth up. :)

The Alchemist (by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho) is very simple read, yet powerfully compelling and philosophical. Highly recommended to all.

The central theme of the book could be best represented by the well-loved line found in the book itself:  “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” 

But my personal favourite in the book is:

“When I have been truly searching for my treasure, every day has been luminous, because I’ve known that every hour was a part of the dream that I would find it. When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for a shepherd to achieve.” 

Cheers to a quiet and peaceful Sunday.  :)
