Knowledge was always the power that kept the Universe in its place and the stars turning in their orbits.

You can choose between being a victim of destiny or an adventurer who is fighting for something important.

Paulo Coelho
He tries to show each person how much they are capable of achieving.

I was arrested three times and tortured once.

Paulo Coelho
Attacking or fleeing are part of the struggle; being paralysed by fear is not.
Paulo Coelho

The day is made up of 24 hours and an infinite number of moments. We need to be aware of those moments and make the most of them regardless of whether we're busy doing something or contemplating life.

Paulo Coelho
As she had been walking from the ward to that room, she had felt such pure hatred that now she had no more rancor left in her heart. She had finally allowed her negative feelings to surface, feelings that had been repressed for years in her soul. She had actually FELT them, and they were no longer necessary, they could leave.
Paulo Coelho

A warrior of light knows that in the silence of his heart he will hear an order that will guide him.

Paulo Coelho
What do you want? You can't want to be happy, because that's too easy and too boring. You can't want only to love, because that's impossible. What do you want? You want to justify your life, to live it as intensely as possible. That is at once a trap and a source of ecstasy. Try to be alert to that danger and experience the joy and the adventure of being that woman who is beyond the image reflected in the mirror.
Paulo Coelho

That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.

Paulo Coelho
There is no sin but the lack of love.
