20 Inspiring Quotes from The Alchemist

We all are dreamers. Some dream and work hard to achieve while other dream and give enough excuses not to follow them. If you belong to the latter category then today’s post is all about dreams and inspirations.

Here in this post, I share 20 Inspirational quotes from the book – The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

It is one such book that never fails to impress, inspire and invoke the inner thoughts. Every time I read, I feel like transforming into a new person brimming with energy, believing in my dreams and working hard to achieve my goals.

– Read on, get inspired and follow your dreams.- 


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

#8. “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.”
