Believing everything your child does wrong is entirely down to the company he or she keeps.

In true love you want your partner to be happy.In false love you want your partner.

Paulo Coelho
It’s not always enough to be forgiven by someone, in most cases we have to forgive ourselves first.
Paulo Coelho

The night is just a part of the day

Paulo Coelho
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. I've fallen in love many times... always with you. What I need to live has been given to me by the earth. Why I need to live has been given to me by you. Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.
Paulo Coelho

Courage is the quality most essential to understanding the language of the world.

Paulo Coelho
In my world, everything is possible and everything is relative.
Paulo Coelho

The more violent the storm, the quicker it passes.

Paulo Coelho
We learn in the past, but we are not the result of that. We suffered in the past, loved in the past, cried and laughed in the past, but that's of no use in the present. The present has its challenges, its good and bad side. We can neither blame nor be grateful to the past for what is happening now. Each new experience of love has nothing whatsoever to do with past experiences. It's always new.
Paulo Coelho

All life's battles teach us something, even those we lose. When you grow up, you'll discover that you have defended lies, deceived yourself, or suffered foolishness. If you're a good warrior you will not blame yourself for this, but neither will you allow your mistakes to repeat themselves.

Paulo Coelho
We shall choose our adversaries, not the other way around.
