People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves.

We must never stop dreaming. Dreams provide nourishment for the soul, just as a meal does for the body.

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

I am not a self-help writer. I am a self-problem writer. When people read my books, I provoke some things. I cannot justify my work. I do my work; it is up to them to classify it, to judge.

Paulo Coelho
He though does not always have faith.
Paulo Coelho

If only we could be enlightened enough to be able to listen in the silence.

Paulo Coelho
The aim of every human being is to understand the meaning of total love.
Paulo Coelho

To say "no" is painful, but much better than a "yes" that brings regrets.

Paulo Coelho
You have a personal legend to fulfil, period. It is of no matter if others support you, or criticise you, ignore or tolerate you. You are doing that because that is your destiny on this earth, and the source of any joy.
Paulo Coelho

I #‎ forgive not because I became a saint, but because I'm tired of hating.

Paulo Coelho
Suffering has no strength to wound a weary body.
