Comment 

There hadn't been one specific moment. It was like gradualy waking up. You go from being asleep to the space between dreaming and awake and then into consciousness. It's a slow process, but when you're awake, there's no mistaking it. There was no mistaking that it had been love.

She and I were still friends, but not best friends, not like we used to be. But we were still friends. She'd known me my whole life. It's hard to throw away history. It was like you were throwing away a part of yourself.

Comment 

What I'm saying is that I'm trying to find rational reasons to explain irrational feelings, and that's never a good sign.

Stephen King in The Dark Tower
 
Comment 

As for the end of the universe… I say let it come as it will, in ice, fire, or darkness. What did the universe ever do for me that I should mind its welfare?

The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

Getting upPaulo Coelho in The Alchemist
 
Comment 

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

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

HeartPaulo Coelho in The Alchemist
 
Comment 

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.

Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist

Comment 

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.

Paulo Coelho in The Fifth Mountain
 
Comment 

The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.

LovePaulo Coelho in By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
 
Comment 

But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.

Paulo Coelho in By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
 
Comment 

I've been in love before, it's like a narcotic. At first it brings the euphoria of complete surrender. The next day you want more. You're not addicted yet, but you like the sensation, and you think you can still control things.You think about the person you love for two minutes then forget them for three hours. But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget him for two minutes. If he's not there, you feel like an addict who can't get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you're willing to do anything for love.

Paulo Coelho in By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
 
Comment 

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

Paulo Coelho in Veronika beschließt zu sterben
 
Comment 

If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist
 
Comment 

Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.

Life, WinePaulo Coelho in Brida
 
Comment 

I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living now.

Paulo Coelho in The Alchemist
 
Comment 

No one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.

Paulo Coelho in Eleven Minutes
 
Comment 

In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.

Paulo Coelho in By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
 
Comment 

Anyone who loves in the expectation of being loved in return is wasting their time.

Paulo Coelho in The Devil and Miss Prym
 
Comment 

Your eyes show the strength of your soul.

EyesPaulo Coelho in The Alchemist
 
Comment 

Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives.

Fake FriendsPaulo Coelho in The Zahir
 
Comment 

The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.

What is a teacher? I'll tell you: it isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.

TeachersPaulo Coelho in The Witch of Portobello
 
Comment 

After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn't bring and never has brought happiness. On the contrary, it's a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it's sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we're doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.

Paulo Coelho in The Witch of Portobello
 
Comment 

When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.

Paulo Coelho in Eleven Minutes
