Paulo Coelho

A warrior of light knows that he will hear an order in the silence of his heart that will guide him.

True love allows each person to follow his or her own path, aware that doing so can never drive them apart.

To love is to commune with another person and to discover in him or her a divine spark.

The Lord listens to the pryers of those who ask to be able to forget hatred, but is deaf to those who want to flee love.

Few take up the burden of their own victory: most give up their dreams when they become impossible.

I opened the window and my heart. The sun flooded my house and love flooded my soul.

Time does not always pass at the same speed. We are the ones who determine that speed.

To realize one’s Personal Legend is a person’s only real obligation.

When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.

There is a language in the world that everyone understands. The language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.

If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man.

The secret is here in the present. If you pay attention to the present, you can improve upon it. And if you improve on the present, what comes later will also be better.

Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity.

Love never keeps a man from pursuing his Personal Legend. If he abandons that pursuit, it’s because it wasn’t true love.

The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.

Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time.

The world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse.
