The Fortune Teller informs Santiago that his dream is difficult to interpret because it involves "the simple things in life." 

"I told you that your dream was a difficult one. It's the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary; only wise men are able to understand them. And since I am not wise, I have had to learn other arts, such as the reading of palms."
