The magic moment is the moment when a 'yes' or a 'no' can change our whole existence.

Paulo Coelho
Don’t be intimidated by other people’s opinions. Only mediocrity is sure of itself, so take risks and do what you really want to do.
Paulo Coelho

Believing that art is either worth a fortune or worth nothing at all.

Paulo Coelho
When you close that door to nowhere throw away the key, we have a tendency to look back and regret
Paulo Coelho

Learn from someone who has already been up there: no matter how unique you feel, there is always someone who has had the same dream before you and ended up leaving marks that can make your journey easier; places to hang the rope, trails, broken branches to make the walking easier. The climb is yours, so is the responsibility, but don't forget that the experience of others can help a lot.

Paulo Coelho
A warrior accepts defeat. He does not treat it as a matter of indifference, nor does he attempt to transform it into a victory. The pain of defeat is bitter to him; he suffers at indifference and becomes desperate with loneliness. After all this has passed, he licks his wounds and begins everything anew. A warrior knows that war is made of many battles: he goes on
Paulo Coelho

Love lasts because it changes and not because it stays the same and never faces any challenges.

Paulo Coelho
When you know how to use it, disobedience can be a virtue.
Paulo Coelho

In the beginning there was only a small amount of injustice abroad in the world, but everyone who came afterwards added their portion, always thinking it was very small and unimportant, and look where we have ended up today.

Paulo Coelho
Certainly. But take this into consideration: of every ten problems we have, nine are created by our own selves - through guilt, self-punishment, self-pity. However, from time to time a great obstacle appears in our path, which was put there by God, and which is there for a reason. The reason is: to give us the opportunity to change everything, to move forwards.
