Paulo Coelho

suffering.
Paulo Coelho

Dreams are the language of God.
Paulo Coelho

Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on
and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad,
supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable
lives.
Paulo Coelho

The one who loves has won the world and is not afraid of loosing. True love is an act of total
abandon.
Paulo Coelho

A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it
be from a high place!
Paulo Coelho

The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity
slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to

Paulo Coelho

Everything is worship if your mind is focused on the present moment.
Paulo Coelho

Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.

inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.

Paulo Coelho

Every search begins with beginners luck and ends with the victor's being severely tested.
Paulo Coelho

Your eyes show the strength of your soul.

The alchemists spent years in their laboratories, observing the fire that purified the metals.
They spent so much time close to the fire that gradually they gave up the vanities of the
world. They discovered that the purification of the metals had led to a purification of
themselves.
Paulo Coelho

You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it's better to listen to what it has to say.
That way, you'll never have to fear an unanticipated blow.
Paulo Coelho

We all have the ability. We just don't all have the courage to follow our dreams and to follow
the signs.
Paulo Coelho

When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to
make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the
way.
Paulo Coelho

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.
Paulo Coelho 

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
Paulo Coelho

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none
about his or her own.
Paulo Coelho

Love is not to be found in someone else, but in ourselves; we simply awaken it. But in order
to do that, we need the other person. The universe only makes sense when we have
someone to share our feelings with.
Paulo Coelho

At a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives
become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie.
Paulo Coelho

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.
Paulo Coelho

Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison
it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
Paulo Coelho

We can let the energy of love flow instead of placing it in a jar and leaving it aside.
Paulo Coelho

Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.
Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons. Every Warrior of the
Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said ‘yes’ when he wanted to say "no."
Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved.
That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has
never lost hope of being better than he is.
Paulo Coelho

Every human being should keep alive within them the sacred flame of madness, but should
behave as a normal person.
Paulo Coelho

The greatest wisdom is blinded by the glare of vanity.
Paulo Coelho

Just as your hand has the power to hide the sun, mediocrity has the power to hide your inner
light. Do not blame others for your own incompetence.
Paulo Coelho
