  1. Ive read this book multiple times and every time I do, I feel I learn a new amazing quote. Its always exciting when I pick up this book again.

    1. Hi Caleb – I agree! Every time you read this book it’s a different experience.

  2. I have just finished reading this book! It was definitely a good read. I learned to view life from a different perspective.

  3. Wow sounds like a beautiful book! Thanks so much for sharing. Adding it to my kindle so I can read it. Some of those quotes I really needed this morning.

    1. Hi Cortney – It really is a beautiful story 🙂 I hope you love it once you read!

  4. This is beautiful Yolanda! The Alchemist is one of the books that changed the way I view life. To this day I believe the universe conspires to make your dreams come true.

    1. Thanks so much Sabrina. I am a huge fan of the book and Paulo Coelho! I had a feeling you would be a fan too which I love 🙂 I love your outlook and completely agree xo

  5. I read this book years ago, in a completely different time in my life (pre husband and kids). I imagine the meanings change with different seasons of life. I loved reading this post this morning. And you have inspired me to pick up that book and read it again.

    1. Hi Jenny! Oh yes! I definitely recommend reading it again. I’ve actually read it twice and want to read again soon. I feel that depending on where you are in your life you will get something completely different out of the book. I hope you love the book this time around too 🙂

  6. Such a great post, The Alchemist was and is one of my favorite books. I love the level of detail you went into !

  7. I have not read the Alchemist but you have inspired me to do so. Thanks for sharing. You are putting a lot of work in your posts!

  8. This is such an amazing quote collection! – becky

  9. Thanks for sharing your experience. Amazing quotes. Sure I am thinking to read it again.

  10. I’ve never read the book but the quotes are beautiful! Must add to my list.

  11. This is the kind of book you can read over every few years! Right now my favorite quote is “It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.” A few years ago, I’m sure a different one would have resonated with me the most.

  12. Wow! This book sounds amazing!! the quotes are beautiful!! I will definitely be checking this book out! thank you for sharing!

  13. Janice Hubert says:

    I haven’t read the book but noticed some of these quotes are similar to bible verses. Eg Matthew ch 6 v 21 “for where your treasure is there your heart will be also”. And proverbs ch 24 v 16 “the righteous may fall seven times and he will get up again”. Still want to read the book though.

  14. A great list of quotes, thank you for sharing. I want to read the book again now! We read a passage from The Alchemist at my wedding ceremony -the part about two trees growing together until one day they realise that they are no longer two trees, but one.

    1. That’s such a beautiful quote too. So perfect to read at your wedding. Read it again. I’ve read twice and I’m planning on reading again soon. I get something different out of the book each time I read 🙂

  15. The Alchemist is one of my fave books ever! Just wrote a blog post about my favorite books, and that one was definitely on it. Great post!

    1. It’s just so good isn’t it! I think it should be read every 5 years 🙂

    1. Hey Melanie! So happy these amazing quotes brought a smile to your day 🙂 You have a fab week too!

    1. If you have time – I encourage you to read it again! I read it twice so far, at two very different times in my life. I enjoyed it the first time, but fell in love with it the second time 🙂

    1. Hi Jen! Glad it’s on your list – I try and encourage as many people as possible to read it. I really hope you enjoy 🙂

  16. Some beautiful quotes. Definitely inspiring and gives you something to think about.

    1. Yes, Paulo Coelho certainly has a way with words. So much to ponder!

  17. Fantastic quotes. Love the one about getting up 8 times when you have fallen over 7 times.

    1. Paulo Coelho is one insightful man! Yes, I love that one too 🙂

  18. Emily Anne says:

    This book sounds really really good!! I’m excited to check it out!

  19. I loved this book, so much that I read many of his others. I read them as a teenager. I think they have more meaning for me now as an adult. Thank you for this distillation of the books’ best quotes!

  20. It has been several years since I have read this book. Think it is one of the most read books in the world. Great reminder of how good it is.

  21. It’s been several years since I read The Alchemist. I think the quotes are more powerful and inspirational now than when I first read the book. It’s impossible for me to pick a favorite, but I like the one, “if it’s still in your mind, it’s still worth taking the risk.” So true.

    1. Hey Margaret! I originally read several years ago too, and then again more recently. I find this book gives you different meaning depending on where you are in your life. Yes – that is a great quote!

  22. I can’t wait to read this book! It sounds amazing.

    1. Hi Jeanne! If you do pick up I’d love to know what you think 🙂
