The Alchemist

“But as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to reach their Personal Legend” (21). There are many obstacles we have to overcome in order to reach our Personal Legend, which sometimes tricks us into thinking our destiny may be impossible.
This reminds me of when the boy turned himself into the wind.“If a person is living out his Personal Legend, he knows everything he needs to know” (140). This quote teaches Santiago to not question his ability to turn himself into the wind, and to listen to his heart.
“Treasure is uncovered by the force of flowing water, and is buried by the same currents” (24). It takes hard work to achieve our Personal Legend, but the hard work may cause us to experience self- doubt, which then leads to us putting it aside or forgetting about it.
