Signs 101

"One could open a book to any page, or look at a person's hand; one could turn a card, or watch the flight of birds...whatever the thing observed, one could find a connection with his experience of the moment. Actually it wasn't that those things, in themselves, revealed anything at all; it was just that people, looking at what was occurring around them, could find a means of penetration to the Soul of the World."
Page 101 of The Alchemist

Almost symbolic in the placement in the book. Signs 101.

"No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world and he doesn't even know it." page 159/159 The Alchemist
