Book : Heart & Dreams


*

" Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him," his heart said. "We, people's hearts, seldom say much about those treasures, because people no longer want to go in search of them. Later, we simply let life proceed, in its own direction, towards 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 wold as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed, to be a 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." 
" Why don't people's hearts tell them to continue to follow their dreams?", the boy asked the alchemist. 
"Because that's what makes a heart suffer most, and hearts don't like to suffer.
