The title reveals it all, yes I am on to it for the second time – The Alchemist. The honest reason to get back to it for the second time is, I have read it long 3 years back and hardly remember it now,moreover I was lacking it a little – The motivation. For the first time it was as good as a bouncer ball but for this time I am able inculcate it and hope I’ll make most out of it. Just listing out some of the great lines from the book from the part I am done with :

  • Maktub” (It is written)
  • When you really want something, the universe always conspires in your favor.
  • It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
  • The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.
  • The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.
  • Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
  • β€œWhy do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked-
    “Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.
  • Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.
  • There is only one way to learn. It’s through action.
  • And, when you can’t go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.
  • You must always know what it is that you want.
  • The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon.
  • The secret is here in the present.
  • To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation.
  • He hadn’t a cent in his pocket, but he had faith !
  • It is bound to come a moment when what seems close is still very far away.
  • Life is really generous to those who pursue their Personal Legend.

I want to back to it – reading,reading and a lot of the same. Signing of on the note to my (lazy,procrastinating) soul that I will take this up seriously now.
