17 Life Altering Quotes By Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

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.”

“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.”

“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 I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.”
