“The Alchemist” famous love phrase

At that moment, it seemed to me that time stood still, and the Soul of the World surged within me.  When I looked intro her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, I learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke-the language that everyone on earth is capable of understanding in their heart.  It was love…Something older then humanity, more ancient then the desert.  Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met, as had theirs here at the well.  She smiled, and that was certainly an omen-the omen I had been awaiting, without even knowing I was, for all my life.  The omen I had sought to find in my books, in the crystals and in the silence of the desert……It was the pure language of the World.  It required no explanation, just as the universe need none as it travels through endless time.  What I felt at that moment was that I was in the presence of the only women in my life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing.  I was more certain of it than anything in the world …And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant.  There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only.  It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world.  Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meanings.
