Philosophy can't build bridges, but can encourage people to cross them.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel.

Paulo Coelho
I don't go to parties in general.
Paulo Coelho

I believe everything is one thing only. That said, there are some questions in my life that I don't know.. I've stopped asking. At the very beginning of my life, I wanted to have answers for everything. And now I respect the fact that I can't have answers for everything.

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

Dreamers can't be tamed.

Paulo Coelho
The issue is not answering questions, but leaving discussions open. Not in the sense that probably one day you are going to have an answer or you are not going to have an answer. Just live your life, do what you have to do, what you are enthusiastic about doing.
Paulo Coelho

I only write to understand myself better... I don't try to show how intelligent or how cultivated I am, I just try to share my soul. Sharing is part of life.

Paulo Coelho
Children are always looking at the world as if it was for the first time in their lives. So, we should always look to the world with the eyes of a child. I am not saying be naive, I am saying be innocent in the sense of discovering things.
Paulo Coelho

Emotions were like wild horses and it required wisdom to be able to control them

Paulo Coelho
Like the fighter, the Warrior is aware of his own immense strength; he never fights with anyone who does not deserve the honor of combat.
