“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”

“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked.

“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you will find your treasure.”

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 

"When you are loved, you can do anything in creation."

“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now”

"If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return."

"One’s Personal Legend is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible."

"Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own."

"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."

"Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time."

"A simple and great fairytale that brings forth the greatest questions in life."

“There is only one way to learn. It’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.” 

“I’m like everyone else — I see the world in terms of what I would like to see happen, not what actually does.”
