25 Paulo Coelho Quotes For Your Daily Dose Of Inspiration

  • 0
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.
One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.
The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.
The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.
Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn’t have the courage to say “yes” to life?
If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.
Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.
When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.
Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.
When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.
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.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
Nothing in the world is ever completely wrong. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them. 
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.
Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart. TC mark
