The quote is If you build it, he will come. and comes from a baseball movie with Kevin Costner from 1989 called Field of dreams. It’s sort of magical realism about reliving the past and meeting your heroes by building a baseball pitch . The He in the sentence refers to a baseball player idolised by the character Kevin Costner plays and that he will get a chance to meet him because an unknown voice tells him: If you build it, he will come while he’s out in a cornfield. More generally I suppose it can mean that if something is there people will be attracted to it. Sometime you just need a place to go. An opportunity to do something you love.
Field of Dreams is a 1989 film about an Iowa corn farmer who hears a voice telling him: "If you build it, he will come. He interprets this as an instruction to build a baseball diamond in his fields; after he does, Shoeless Joe Jackson and other dead baseball players emerge from the cornfields to play ball. Directed by Phil Alden Robinson. Screenplay by Phil Alden Robinson, based upon the book Shoeless Joe (1982) by W. P. Kinsella.
While walking through his cornfield one evening, he hears a voice whispering, "If you build it, he will come. Ray also sees a vision of a baseball diamond in his field. Annie is skeptical, but agrees to him plowing part of the corn under to build a baseball field, despite the financial repercussions it will cause. As he builds, he tells Karin about the 1919 Black Sox Scandal. The next morning, Mark returns and demands that Ray sell the farm. Karin insists there is no need to sell it, because people will come and pay to watch the ballgames. When Ray again refuses to sell, a scuffle breaks out between him and Mark, during which Karin is accidentally knocked off the bleachers and is unresponsive.
If You Build it, Will They Come? What is the relationship between intent and outcome? Does the Field of Dreams quote, if you build it, they will come have truth to it? Not exactly, but it does allude to an important and true concept (which is likely why we still quote, and mis-quote, it today). The truth is: If you build it, you increase the odds of them coming. He also says people will come Ray (the they). The story twists and turns, Ray makes peace with the characters including his father, and in the end, the audience and Ray are left in doubt that there was really any ghosts at all (implying it was all in Ray’s head). A clip from the end of Field of Dreams where Ray talks to his father as a young man (he did come).

the line in the movie was "If you build it, he will come. And it was said by a disembodied voice. So Costner builds a baseball field in the middle of his cornfield and everyone thinks he's crazy. When the field is done, ghost baseball players come out and play and the family interacts with them. Thousands of people come from miles away to see the games. So eat of them and feed the miserable and poor. Also refers to Noah when Noah built the Ark and YHWH promised that all creatures will come into the ark to be saved from the flood.

He put every dime he had to build it because because of that strong voice whispering. If you build it, they will come.

The quote: If you build it, he will come. Kevin Costner’s character walks around in his crop field, repeatedly hearing the words If you build it, he will come. He is amazed that his wife, sitting on the porch, can’t hear them too – and it appears a generation of filmgoers wasn’t paying much attention either.

This is one of the few misquotes that gets the tone of the original wrong as well as the words.
