Writing means sharing. It's part of the human condition to want to share things - thoughts, ideas, opinions.

Paulo Coelho
When you have an intense contact of love with nature or another human being, like a spark, then you understand that there is no time and that everything is eternal.
Paulo Coelho

Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.

Paulo Coelho
May we understand that joy is not a sin, sacrifice is not a virtue.
Paulo Coelho

In order to arrive you must follow the signs. God inscribed on the world the path that each man must follow. It is just a matter of reading the inscription He wrote for you.

Paulo Coelho
Certain things are so important that they need to be discovered alone.
Paulo Coelho

when fate is very generous with us, there is always a well into which all our dreams can tumble.

Paulo Coelho
If only everyone could know and live with their inner craziness. Would the world be a worse place for it? No, people would be fairer and happier.
Paulo Coelho

God is here, right now, at our side. We can see him in this mist, in the ground we're walking on, even in my shoes. His angels keep watch while we sleep and help us in our work. In order to find God, you have only to look around.

Paulo Coelho
I am not happy, and the quest for happiness as a principal objective is not part of my world. Of course, ever since I can remember, I have done what I felt like doing.
