The moment of that kiss contained every happy moment I had ever lived.

Paulo Coelho

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

Paulo Coelho

To love is to commune with another person and to discover in him or her a divine spark.

Paulo Coelho

The wise are wise only because they love. The fool are fools only because they think they can understand love.

Paulo Coelho

Time does not always pass at the same speed. We are the ones who determine that speed.

Paulo Coelho

Few take up the burden of their own victory: most give up their dreams when they become impossible.

Paulo Coelho

We have to stop and be humble enough to understand that there is something called mystery.

Paulo Coelho

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.

Paulo Coelho

You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.

Paulo Coelho

Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she won't suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when the person looks back-she will hear her heart saying, 'What have you done with the miracles that G-d planted in your days? What have you done with the talents G-d bestowed on you? You buried yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents. So this is your heritage: the certainty that you have wasted your life.

Paulo Coelho

True love allows each person to follow his or her own path, aware that doing so can never drive them apart.

Paulo Coelho

Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere.

Paulo Coelho

The Lord listens to the pryers of those who ask to be able to forget hatred, but is deaf to those who want to flee love.

Paulo Coelho

I still pray but it's something automatic, and I'm not even sure I still believe in it... Because I've suffered, and G-d didn't listen to my prayers. because many times in my life I have tried to love with all my heart, and my love has wound up being trampled or betrayed. If G-d is love, he should have cared more about my feelings.

Paulo Coelho

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

Paulo Coelho

Tonight his eyes were shining-he looked wonderful.

Paulo Coelho

They were seeking out the treasure of their destiny, without actually wanting to live out their destiny.

Paulo Coelho

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.

Paulo Coelho

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.

Paulo Coelho

We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, G-d gives us the sun-and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven't perceived that moment, that it doesn't exist, that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow.

Paulo Coelho

No one can lie, no one can hide anything, when he looks directly into someone's eyes.

Paulo Coelho

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.

Paulo Coelho

I opened the window and my heart. The sun flooded my house and love flooded my soul.

Paulo Coelho

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse

Paulo Coelho

If you start by promising what you don't even have yet, you'll lose your desire to work towards, getting it.
