a question of how I view my life.
Paulo Coelho

I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can
concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a
grand festival, because life is the moment we're living now.
Paulo Coelho

Pity those who seek for shepherds, instead of longing for freedom.

mind is love.

Paulo Coelho

So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.
Paulo Coelho

Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive... and it has
a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognize that it is working for us.
Paulo Coelho

Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just
part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to
where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "Yes" to life?
Paulo Coelho

People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.

towards getting it.
Paulo Coelho

Never stop dreaming. Follow the omens.

want to and when we think we don't need to.

man from following his dreams. If she truly loves you, she will want the best for you.
Paulo Coelho

The best way to know and destroy an enemy is to pretend to become his friend.
Paulo Coelho

The only trap I must beware not to fall into, is to think that each day is the same as the
next. In fact, each morning brings with it a hidden miracle, and we must pay attention to this
miracle.
Paulo Coelho

Everything that is done in the present affects the future in the form of consequence and
affects the past in the form of redemption.
Paulo Coelho

From the moment we are born, people tell us that the world is like this and like that, this
way, that way. It is natural that, for a certain period of time, we end up believing what we
are told. But we must soon push these ideas aside and discover our own way of living reality.
Paulo Coelho
