In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.

Paulo Coelho
Telling the truth and making someone cry is better than telling a lie and making someone smile.
Paulo Coelho

No one knows what is going to happen in the next few minutes, and yet people still go forward, because they have trust, because they have faith.

Paulo Coelho
Writing is a socially acceptable form of getting naked in public
Paulo Coelho

I think we are afraid of each other when it comes to sex, because we read so much about sex, we talk so openly about sex, we see movies and we read books; but when we are face to face with someone else, we forget our individual patterns; that we are unique. So we try to repeat other people's patterns, according to what we seen and what we heard. So most of us are very frustrated, because we don't accept our individuality as far as sex is concerned.

Paulo Coelho
Love one another, but let’s try not to possess one another.
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
Scars are medals branded on the flesh, and your enemies will be frightened by them because they are proof of your long experience of battle.
Paulo Coelho

Even if loving meant leaving, or solitude, or sorrow, love was worth every penny of its price.

Paulo Coelho
We must struggle for our dreams, but when certain paths prove impossible, it would be best to save our energies in order to travel other roads.
