“Don’t think about what you’ve left behind”

The alchemist said to the boy as they began to ride across the sands of the desert.

“If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil.

And one can always come back.

If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star,

you would find nothing on your return.”

— Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
