3 Powerful Paulo Coelho Quotes You Must Understand to Make Your Dreams Come True

Paulo Coelho Quotes for Motivation

Paulo Coelho’s quotes from The Alchemist are life-changing.


Paulo Coelho is my favourite author, and the mark his books have made in my life is indispensable. Over the years, the Brazilian writer has written exceptional books like The Alchemist, Eleven Minutes, The Manual of the Warrior of Light, The Aleph, and much more. It’s not just his books that have changed millions of lives; all his quotes have inspired readers.

Paulo Coelho’s Quotes or his books talk about following your dreams, understanding your soul’s desires, and finding your connection with the universe. And I believe this is what distinguishes him from all other writers.

Randomly, you can pick any of his books, and you can find tons of wisdom about the universe in them. But my favorite is THE ALCHEMIST. This book has changed my life and over the years, I have gifted 100s of copies of The Alchemist to people whom I believe are ready to follow their dreams.

Most of you have read The Alchemist; if you haven’t, you should. If you haven’t read this book, you must have read the most famous quote from this masterpiece again and again.

When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

I called it the most powerful Paulo Coelho quote ever.

You must have heard it many times before, right? But despite knowing this most of the time, you struggle to believe in it or find it difficult to believe that the universe is working this way for you. Isn’t it?

Yes, this is at the top of the Paulo Coelho quotes from The Alchemist. But the truth is, if you want to understand the universal way of working, you can’t understand everything through this one quote alone.

You must read the three most important Paulo Coelho quotes from The Alchemist and find the connection within to understand when the universe conspires against your dreams.

So let’s read the Top Three Motivational Paulo Coelho Quotes From The Alchemist.

Three Most Powerful Paulo Coelho Quotes


There is ONE GREAT TRUTH on this planet:
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.


The soul of the Universe nourished by people’s happiness.


To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

You must have read all these three quotes and probably fallen in love with the third one “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

But despite knowing this quote and desiring many things you still couldn’t get what you want. What is the reason the Universe doesn’t conspire for you to achieve your dreams?

The secret to this most famous quote is stored in the other two quotes.

The first quote says “Your desire originates in the soul of the Universe” and that’s why the Universe conspires to help you achieve it. So when the Universe conspires for your dreams, it works to make the desire within the soul of the Universe come true.

It means your desire and the desire of the Soul of The Universe is the same.

But why the universe couldn’t make the desire come true when it originates in its soul, and it is supposed to get manifested through you?

Read the second quote, “The soul of the universe is nourished by people’s happiness.”

So if you desire something with happiness and if you find joy working on that dream, then you nourish the soul of the universe. When you nourish the soul of the universe for that particular desire, the whole universe conspires to help you achieve it.

If any of your dreams are not coming true whether it is about love, relationships, jobs, money, health, or simply well-being, the reason is this only. You are not nourishing the soul of the Universe with your happiness.

No matter how badly you want something if you want it with desperation, if you want it because you feel sad without it then you won’t get it. If you want something with feelings of anger, sadness, or frustration, then the universe can’t make it true for you. Because with all these negative feelings, you are weakening the soul of the universe and making the desire die within it.

I believe you have now clearly understood these three powerful Paulo Coelho quotes and their secret. If you keep these three quotes in mind and work on your dreams, the universe will happily conspire to make you achieve them.

Honestly, it is not possible for everyone to feel happy about their dreams all the time. There may be moments of sadness or challenges. But knowing the secret of the universe makes you aware of what you are doing wrong.

Feeling sad or negative from time to time is normal. We are human, and the greatest gift of being human is that we have the mind to choose the right thoughts and actions. We have the gift of consciousness to change our focus from negativity to positivity and from sadness to happiness.

When you remember this secret of the universe and use your gift of consciousness, you will manifest everything you want.

As Albert Schweitzer has said:

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.

  7. Thanks a lot dear brother Ajay Mishra for your brilliant analysis. I haven’t read the book but the way you explained it ignited the urge in me to read the book. I must purchase the book and read. The line ” When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” is the most heart touching because I have become broken heart many a times due to noncooperation of my dearest ones even if I am planning a best of the best things to establish in ODISHA, my beloved motherland, for complete self and social development. They don’t have a brain to understand my project but they laugh ludicrously. It hurts me a lot. Why this happens in this universe ? Is this universe not good loving ? Is the universe want to help the bad force and conspire against the good one ? I am really hurt in my heart.

  8. Wow !! thank you so much for explaining the points so clearly. I did not understand the relationship between the quotes before, but thanks to you, now I have clarity.
