B) It's from "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho. (The book is about a shepherd boy Santiago, going on a journey to fulfil his destiny.) The quote essentially refers to the importance of following our dreams and listening to our hearts. It refers to how we should never do things that our hearts and souls deem wrong or inappropriate, and in that sense, we have to trust our hearts to make the right decisions for us.

F) It’s not the dream come true that makes life interesting, it’s the possibility of it happening. The journey is as important as the destination, however without a destination (your dream) the journey is without direction and loses its meaning. So dream that dream, and pursue it.
