Paulo Coelho's books


In order for us to liberate the energy of our strength, our weakness must first have a chance to reveal itself.

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

We humans have two great problems: the first is knowing when to begin; the second is knowing when to stop.

Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.

Life is too short, or too long, for me to allow myself the luxury of living it so badly.

To love is to be in communion with the other and to discover in that other the spark of God.

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

Earn money by taking surveys! International offer!

Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows.

When mouths close, it`s because there`s something important to be said.

Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.

That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.

People never learn anything by being told; they have to find out for themselves.

A Warrior of the Light knows what he wants. And he has no need to waste time on explanations.

A Warrior does not spend his days trying to play the role that others have chosen for him.

In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else`s path is wrong.

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