8:56 P.M. “A Person’s Only Obligation”

“The Soul of the World is nourished by people’s happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, jealousy. To realize one’s Personal Legend is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one, and there is no separation.”

-Melchizedek

4:47 P.M. “Your Mission on Earth”

“Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission here on earth.”

“People learn, early in their lives, what is their reason for being,”
said the old man, with a certain bitterness.

“Maybe that’s why they give up on it so early, too. But that’s the way it is.”

-The Alchemist-
