"Itís this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of whatís happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. Thatís the worldís greatest lie."

"Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is. At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible.

"It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, itís because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. Itís your mission on earth.Ē"

"The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And, if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better. Forget about the future, and live each day according to the teachings,
confident that God loves his children. Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity."

"Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there."

"Every search begins with beginnerís luck. And every search ends with the victorís being severely tested."

"His heart told the boy what his strongest qualities were: his courage in having given up his sheep and in trying to live out his Personal Legend, and his enthusiasm during the time he had worked at the crystal shop."
