God is the same, even though He has a thousand names; it is up to us to select a name for Him.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

A best friend is someone with whom you can sit on the porch, without a word, and then walk away with the feeling that it was the best conversation that ever had in your life. I would like to see next to me was the man in whose presence my heart beat would be evenly and uniformly, the man next to whom I would be calm, because I was not afraid to be the next day to lose him. And the time would have flowed more slowly, and we could just keep quiet, knowing that to talk with us there is still a whole life. Only one thing makes a dream impossible - it is the fear of failure.

Paulo Coelho
A warrior is always aware of what is worth fighting for. He does not go into combat over things that do not concern him, and he never wastes his time over provocations.
Paulo Coelho

Each human being has the right to seek out joy, joy being understood as something which makes one content - not necessarily that which makes others content.

Paulo Coelho
When we turn around & come face to face with our destiny, we discover that words (spoken) are not enough. I know so many people who are brilliant speakers but are quite incapable of practising what they preach. It's one thing to describe a situation & quite another to experience it. I realised a long time ago that a warrior in search of his dream must take his inspiration from what he actually does & not from what he imagines himself doing.
Paulo Coelho

Don't think about what you've left behind... everything is written in the Soul of the World, and there it will stay forever.

Paulo Coelho
No man is an island. To fight the good fight we need help.
Paulo Coelho

Never stop dreaming and follow the omens.

Paulo Coelho
And because of our selfishness, we will be condemned to the worst torture humankind ever invented for itself: loneliness.
Paulo Coelho

You have two types of writers: one like Proust who was locked in his room and wrote the masterpiece. And the other type was Hemingway who celebrated life and also wrote a masterpiece.

Paulo Coelho
The more violent the storm, the quicker it passes.
