The Warrior remembers the past.

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

Only the following items should be considered to be grave faults: not respecting another's rights; allowing oneself to be paralyzed by fear; feeling guilty; believing that one does not deserve the good or ill that happens in one's life; being a coward. We will love our enemies, but not make alliances with them. They were placed in our path in order to test our sword, and we should, out of respect for them, struggle against them. We will choose our enemies.

Paulo Coelho
There is no such thing as a strange world, only a new world.

Paulo Coelho
music isn't just something that comforts or distracts us, it goes beyond that - it's an ideology. you can judge people by the kind of music they listen to.
Paulo Coelho

I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

Paulo Coelho
Brazil is my way to see the world. Being born in that country means: "you don't have a wall separating the physical reality from the magical reality."
Paulo Coelho

If there is any possible consolation in the tragedy of losing someone we love very much, it's the necessary hope that perhaps it was for the best.

Paulo Coelho
Wagers and pacts are made with angels - or with devils.
