What is about to arrive needs to be recognized.”

باولو كويلو, الرابح يبقي وحيدآ
“Whenever he reads articles in newspapers or magazines written by politicians using global warming or the destruction of the environment for their electoral campaigns, he thinks:
How can we be so arrogant? The planet is, was and always will be stronger than us. We can’t destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing.
Why don’t they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us? Because “Saving the planet” gives a sense of power, action and nobility. Whereas “not letting the planet destroy us” might lead us to feelings of despair and impotence, and to a realisation of just how very limited our capabilities are.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone

(a) that men are less treacherous than women;
(b) that they never notice what a woman is wearing because
they're always mentally undressing her,
(c) that as long as you've got breasts,thighs,buttocks and belly in
good trim, you can conquer the world.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“The Superclass tries to promote its values. Ordinary people complain
of divine injustice, they envy power, and it pains them to see
others having fun. They don’t understand that no one is having fun,
that everyone is worried and insecure, and that what the jewels, cars,
and fat wallets conceal is a huge inferiority complex.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“Even If you're doing the same thing over & over, U need to discover something new, fantastic & unbelievable that went unnoticed the time before.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“The young all have the same dream: to save the world. Some quickly forget this dream, convinced that there are more important things to do, like having a family, earning money, traveling, and learning a foreign language. Others, though, decide that it really is possible to make a difference in society and to shape the world we will hand on to future generations.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“We must love because we are loved by God. We must be conscious of death if we are to have a proper understanding of life. We must struggle in order to grow, but without falling into the trap of the power we gain through that struggle, because we know that power is worthless. Finally, we must accept that our eternal soul is, at this moment, caught in the web of time with all its opportunities and its limitations.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity, and there is nothing new under the sun, as Solomon said more than three thousand years ago.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
“They know what the “perfumes” are going to say because they
always say the same thing, but they pretend to believe them anyway.

(a)“I could change your life.”
(b)“A lot of women would like to be in your shoes.”
(c)“You’re young now, but what will become of you in a few
years’ time? You need to think about making a longer-term
investment.”
(d)“I’m married, but my wife . . .” (This opening line can have
various endings: “. . . is ill,” “. . . has threatened to commit
suicide if I leave her,” etc.)
(e)“You’re a princess and deserve to be treated like one. I didn’t
know it until now, but I’ve been waiting for you. I don’t believe
in coincidences and I really think we ought to give this relationship a chance.”
Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
