the alchemist quotes. For people that loves and change quotes.
Here is a change quote by Paulo Coelho:
“You came so that you could learn about your dreams,” said the old woman. “And dreams are the language of God. When he speaks in our language, I can interpret what he has said. But if he speaks in the language of the soul, it is only you who can understand.”

Alchemy and Philosophies
In many versions of the Alchemist, the alchemist wishes he could do more than travel from place to place in search of new or lost knowledge. One thing he wants to do is write, and he believes he can do this because he is just one man with knowledge. In truth, alchemy was an extended metaphor for human existence in general, not just for the alchemist. The scientist might have been able to travel the world and accomplish great things, but most people never could.
I really enjoy the fact that even though all of humanity will eventually reach that point, it is still a strange and wonderful thing to consider: a man can make a new knowledge of himself in a process that takes a lifetime. As a fellow alchemist once said, “As a work of art it is hard to describe, but impossible to explain.” (It’s worth noting that this was not written by an alchemist, so it is not accurate.) What I think is a great metaphor in this sense is a chess game: it is hard to make a truly solid strategy, but it is much easier to learn the rules and perfect a few moves. This analogy is so intriguing that I’ll be talking about it more in future posts.
Although I don’t think I’d ever call myself an alchemist, I am very familiar with the concept and the possibilities of alchemy and human potential, because I know that it is possible to live a possible life filled with knowledge and power. But first, we must be aware of the limitations of human life as a whole, and I think alchemy helps to illustrate those limitations in a very funny and dramatic way. So I’d encourage you to read the Alchemist if you haven’t yet, as it might help to illustrate some of the ideas I’ve expressed here.

Let’s have the quote again: “You came so that you could learn about your dreams,” said the old woman. “And dreams are the language of God. When he speaks in our language, I can interpret what he has said. But if he speaks in the language of the soul, it is only you who can understand.”
