Thoughts from "The Alchemist"

reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo, and thought I'd quickly share some thoughts that have stuck with me:

"What is the world's greatest lie?" the boy asked, completely suprised.
"It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie." 

"People learn, early in their lives, what is their reason for being," said the old man, with a certain bitterness. "Maybe that's why they give up on it so early, too." 

"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it..." 

"...people need not 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."
