"Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there."
"Why do we have to listen to our hearts?" the boy asked, when they had made camp that day.
"Because, whenever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure."
"But my heart is agitated," the boy said. "It has its dreams, it gets emotional, and it's become passionate over a woman of the desert. It asks things of me, and it keeps me from sleeping many nights, when I'm thinking about her."
"Well, that's good. Your heart is alive. Keep listening to what it has to say."

I find the above excerpt from Paulo Coelho's book, The Alchemist, to be incredibly inspiring. Most definitely something I needed to read today. Thought I'd share it with you. xx
P.S. This is the fascinating story of Santiago, a shepherd boy who dreams of travelling the world to seek the most wonderful treasures known to man.
