Paulo Coelho

When a sense of dissatisfaction persists, that means it was placed there by God for one reason only: you need to change everything and move forward.

Paulo Coelho
No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn't know it.
Paulo Coelho

Love is not a habit, a commitment, or a debt. It isn't what romantic songs tell us it is - love simply is.

Paulo Coelho
We learn to fight and to grow strong by fighting.
Paulo Coelho

Sex was always surrounded by taboos, and I don't see it necessarily as a manifestation of evil. I think that sexuality is first and foremost the way that God chooses for us to be here on earth, to enjoy this energy of love in the physical plane.

Paulo Coelho
Try to be "good", you'll be judged. Try to be yourself, you'll be criticized. Therefore, choose the second option. Evil uses the "nice good people" as puppets. It appears dressed as a poor guy, telling them that he needs help...When these people realize they have been used, it is already too late.
Paulo Coelho

The end of one stage is only the beginning of another. Any dangers overcome are the necessary preparation to do better in the next stage.

Paulo Coelho
Our children must follow in our footsteps; after all, we are older and know about the world.
Paulo Coelho

And although she was sometimes dissatisfied with herself, she felt unable to go beyond her own limitations. Books were safer.

Paulo Coelho
