When things start to happen, and the path does reveal itself to us, we become afraid of carrying on

-Paulo Coelho
Paulo Coelho

She didn't need to understand the meaning of life; it was enough to find someone who did, and then fall asleep in his arms and sleep as a child sleeps, knowing that someone stronger than you is protecting you from all evil and all danger

Paulo Coelho
Then she opened her eyes, Veronika did not think 'this must be heaven'. Heaven would never use a fluorescent tube to light a room, and the pain - which started a fraction of a second later - was typical of the Earth. Ah, that Earth pain - unique, unmistakable.
Paulo Coelho

The Road to Santiago is the road of ordinary people.

Paulo Coelho
Never save the best for later. You don't know what tomorrow holds.
Paulo Coelho

We are what we do, and not what we think we must do.

Paulo Coelho
Do you know what I've learned? That although ecstasy is the ability to stand outside yourself, dance is a way of rising up into space, of discovering new dimensions while still remaining in touch with your body. When you dance, the spiritual world and the real world manage to coexist quite happily. I think classical ballet dancers dance on pointe because they're simultaneously touching the earth and reaching up to the skies.
Paulo Coelho

That is the most common excuse, and the most foolish of all. Love has never prevented a man from following his dreams. If she truly loves you, she will want the best for you.

Paulo Coelho
Warriors of light are not perfect.Their beauty lies in accepting this fact and still desiring to grow and to learn.
Paulo Coelho

To one who knocks, the door will open.

Paulo Coelho
Simply having the courage to say senseless things made me euphoric. I was free, with no need to seek or to give explanations for what I was doing. This freedom lifted me to the heavens - where greater love, one that forgives everything and never allows you to feel abandoned, once again enveloped me.
