There was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.

Publishing is in a kind of Jurassic age.

Paulo Coelho
The world is being created and destroyed in this very moment. Whoever you met will reappear, whoever you lost will return. Don’t betray the grace that was bestowed on you. Understand what is going on inside you and you will understand what is going on inside everyone else. Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace. I came with a sword.
Paulo Coelho

When we're interested in something, everything around us appears to refer to it (the mystics call these phenomena "signs," the sceptics "coincidence," and psychologists "concentrated focus," although I've yet to find out what term historians should use).

Come on, let's go. Crazy people do crazy things.

That's how love got lost ... when we started laying down rules for when love should or shouldn't appear.
Paulo Coelho

I think that when we look for love courageously, it reveals itself, and we wind up attracting even more love. If one person really wants us, everyone does. But if we’re alone, we become even more alone. Life is strange.

Paulo Coelho
Never abandon your dreams. Follow the signs.
Paulo Coelho

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

Paulo Coelho
It's a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life.
