It is the imperfect that astonishes and attracts us.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

And the person who loves wholeheartedly feels free.

Paulo Coelho
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.
Paulo Coelho

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse. I don't want anything else in life. But you are forcing me to look at wealth and at horizons I have never known. Now that I have seen them, and now that I see how immense my possibilities are, I'm going to feel worse than I did before you arrived. Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so.

Paulo Coelho
We assume, falsely, that how we feel now is how we will feel in the future
Paulo Coelho

You can't avoid pain, but you can choose to overcome it.

Paulo Coelho
That's how love got lost ... when we started laying down rules for when love should or shouldn't appear.
Paulo Coelho

A search always starts with Beginner's Luck and ends with the Test of the Conqueror.

Paulo Coelho
I realised that you don't have to jump through a series of complicated hoops to achieve a goal.
Paulo Coelho

Once a problem is solved, its simplicity is amazing.

Paulo Coelho
Avoiding problems you need to face is avoiding the life you need to live.
