― Kurt Vonnegut Jr., A Man Without a Country

the alchemist:

  • “The darkest hour of midnight comes just before dawn.”
  • “There is only one way to learn. It’s through action. Everything you need to know you have learned through your journey.”
  • Here I am, between my flock and my treasure, the boy thought. He had to choose between something he had become accustomed to and something he wanted to have.
  • In order to find the treasure, you will have to follow the omens. God has prepared a path for everyone to follow. You just have to read the omens that he left for you.
  • Don't forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else. And don't forget the language of omens. And, above all, don't forget to follow your destiny through to its conclusion.
