Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him.
We, people’s hearts, seldom say much about those treasures, because people no longer want to go in search of them. We speak of them only to children.
Later, we simply let life proceed, in its own direction, toward its own fate.
But, unfortunately, very few follow the path laid out for them—the path to their destinies, and to happiness.
Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out indeed, to be threatening place.
So, we, their hearts, speak more and more softly.
We never stop speaking out, but we begin to hope that our words won’t be heard: we don’t want people to suffer because they don’t follow their hearts.
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
