The old shepherd was right: The only solution was to forget a part of uncertainty and create a new history for oneself.

Making mistakes is a way of taking action.

Paulo Coelho
If you want to be successful, you must respect one rule. Never lie to yourself.
Paulo Coelho

If you accept such love with purity and humility, you will understand that Love is neither giving nor receiving -it is participating.

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'm not a body with a soul, I'm a soul that has a visible part called the body

Paulo Coelho
Be like the fountain that overflows, not like the cistern that merely contains.
Paulo Coelho

This time I m not going to tell you a story. I'll just say that insanity is the inability to communicate your ideas. It's as if you were in a foreign country, able to see and understand everything that's going on around you but incapable of explaining what you need to know or of being helped, because you don't understand the language they speak there.

Paulo Coelho
Life can seem short or life can seem long, depending on how you live it.
Paulo Coelho

When you say 'yes' to others, make sure you are not saying 'no' to yourself.

Paulo Coelho
Ester asked why people are sad. "That’s simple," says the old man. "They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people's ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.
