“From a psychological point of view, one can see how this is quite true.  People until the age of around twenty five have frontal lobes of the brain that are not yet fully developed.  The frontal lobe is the seat of reasoning.  It is often because of this that an individual acts on impulse.  It is only when a human begins to fear failure that the individual follows a more pragmatic path.  Many people in the world have never realized or obtained the fruits of their dreams.”
Summary Station, The Alchemist: Summary and Analysis of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“As Santiago continues the discussion with the old man, he tells Santiago of his own story about denying his own personal legend, or dream.  He tells Santiago that when people are young, they are unafraid to seek out their personal legend.  It is only in the process of growing up and caring what others think that causes a person to deny their own happiness.  This conversation held at this point of the story reiterates the central theme of finding one’s ‘Personal Legend’.   From a psychological point of view, one can see how this is quite true.  People until the age of around twenty five have frontal lobes of the brain that are not yet fully developed.  The frontal lobe is the seat of reasoning.  It is often because of this that an individual acts on impulse.  It is only when a human begins to fear failure that the individual follows a more pragmatic path.  Many people in the world have never realized or obtained the fruits of their dreams.  ‘The Alchemist’ touches on this throughout the entire novel.”
Summary Station, The Alchemist: Summary and Analysis of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

“What is ‘beginner’s luck’?  What are the explanations of some of the eternal burning questions presented to the universe by mankind? What is the meaning of life?  Why are we here? As the reader peruses through the pages of ‘The Alchemist’ written by Paulo Coelho, theories of these ancient questions are presented in a manner resembling a parable and comparative in shaping one’s way of thinking to Aesop’s fables.”
