Few picks from Paulo Coelho’s

I have been reading Paulo Coelho for some time and I find in his books the wisdom and philosophy that perhaps makes one to comprehend life better and beautifully. The perspective he uses is always positive and that’s what makes a difference in long run. Here are the few chosen words from his different books that I found worth sharing

And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it -Alchemist

Everything that happens once can never happen again. But everything that happens twice will surely happen a third time. -Alchemist

Excessive caution destroys the soul and the heart, because living is an act of courage, and an act of courage is always an act of love.
– Manuscript Found in Accra

The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.
– Veronika Decides to Die

You have two choices, to control your mind or to let your mind control you.
– Veronika Decides to Die

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant -Eleven Minutes

God always offers us a second chance in life.
– By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
– By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

Everything and everybody is the same; this is the mystery and the end.

The Warrior of the Light is a believer.
Because he believes in miracles, miracles begin to happen. Because he is sure that his thoughts can change his life, his life begins to change. Because he is certain that he will find love, love appears.
-Warrior of the Light

Try to live with the same intensity as a child. He doesn’t ask for explanations; he dives into each day as if it were a new adventure and, at night, sleeps tired and happy.
-Warrior of the Light

We always have the necessary resources to face the storms that life throws at us, but most of the time,those resources are locked up in the depths of our heart and we waste an enormous amount of time trying to find them.By the time we’ve found them,we already been defeated by adversity.
-Like the Flowing River
