“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
-The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
Why I like it
Who wouldn’t like this quote that gives them immense hope and a sense of calm to know that if they really wanted to achieve something, they will surely have help from the universe – or in this instance fate and destiny! The simple belief in the statement and the hope it conveys are two reasons why I like it.
Why it finds a place in my top 100:
I have never set much store on luck and destiny, except for those weak moments when I felt nothing was ever going right and I had to find something to blame. I quickly shake myself out of the madness and get back to work. But a simple positive thought like this: that I will have outside help if I really want something I deserve helps me in trudging along with determination.
It may not be the whole universe that was conspiring in helping me, but at least I come up with better, clearer ideas that will help me along my path. In that way, the universe does conspire and help seems to come from unforeseen places, rekindling hope that there is something beyond human comprehension, the life force of this universe, that is a silent spectator coming into play sometimes when intervention is called for.
