Paulo Coelho

“Everything will happen as was written by the Lord," replied the prophet. "There are moments when tribulations occur in our lives, and we cannot avoid them. But they are there for some reason."

"What reason?"

"That is a question we cannot answer before, or even during the trials. Only when we have overcome them do we understand why they were there.”


Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain
