Human Heart

What heart withdraws from pain and suffering?

What heart tells you to stop striving?

What heart screams “Enough is enough!”

“…It’s time to give up.” ?

“Well then, why should I listen to my heart?”

“Because you will never again be able to keep it quiet. Even if you pretend not to have heard what it tells you, it will always be there inside you, repeating to you what you’re thinking about life and about the world”

A dialogue between Santiago and the Alchemist

(from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho)
