A Quote by Sol Luckman on literature, beginners luke, sol luckman, critics, immortality, organic, experience, complexity, transcendence, mundane origins, alchemy, alchemist, gold, base metals, and transmutation

Literature, at its best, and despite the recent attempts of critics, can never be murdered and dissected, as it’s an immortal yet organic thing, drawing on the richness and complexity of Experience yet somehow managing to transcend its mundane origins like an alchemist transmuting base metals.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on alchemy, alchemist, experiment, word, vocabulary, reverie, exaltation, name, and substance

The psychology of the alchemist is that of reveries trying to constitute themselves in experiments on the exterior world. A double vocabulary must be established between reverie and experiment. The exaltation of the names of substances is the preamble to experiments on the "exalted" substances.

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on alchemy, alchemist, anima, animus, soul, world, and conviction

Thanks to his complex convictions, made strong with the forces of animus and anima, the alchemist believes he is seizing the soul of the world, participating in the soul of the world. Thus, from the world to the man, alchemy is a problem of souls.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho, alchemist, enthusiasm, and language

There was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho and alchemist

Making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho and alchemist

People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want. We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it's our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world were written by the same Hand.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on coelho, alchemist, past, future, present, now, and happiness

Because 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 right now.
