It is the imperfect that astonishes and attracts us.

Carry in your memory, for the rest of your life, the good things that came out of those difficulties. They will serve as a proof of your abilities and will give you confidence when you are faced by other obstacles.

Paulo Coelho
A good, true, intense love is not complete without madness.
Paulo Coelho

Enjoy the questions and forget the answers.

Paulo Coelho
I've never been as happy as I am now, because I followed the signs, I was patient, and I know that this is going to change everything.
Paulo Coelho

We learn in the past, but we are not the result of that. We suffered in the past, loved in the past, cried and laughed in the past, but that's of no use in the present. The present has its challenges, its good and bad side. We can neither blame nor be grateful to the past for what is happening now. Each new experience of love has nothing whatsoever to do with past experiences. It's always new.

Paulo Coelho
Blessed are those who are not afraid to admit that they don't know something
Paulo Coelho

People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.

Paulo Coelho
I am a Catholic.
Paulo Coelho

A disciple...can never imitate his guide's steps. You have your own way of living your life, of dealing with problems, and of winning. Teaching is only demonstrating that it is possible. Learning is making it possible for yourself.

Paulo Coelho
the reward of our work is not what we get, but what we become
