For a book that is so strikingly illustrated and written by an author held in such high esteem, this is a really rubbish book.

Out of context, the quotes which are all taken from his various published and unpublished works; make no sense. The book also came off as a little self-indulgent. Perhaps it's time to put away the writing implements, I mean, did anyone else read Adultery?

The text was also contradictory from one chapter to the next. This would be a great gift for someone who is totally i

Feelings should always be free.
You should never judge a future love
By what you've suffered in the past.
~ By the river piedra I sat down and wept ~
An attractive book meant to be given as a gift. Little more than a collection of often contradictory and, for me, uninspiring Coelho quotes. His books are quick to read. Why not make a present out of something he crafted, not these extractions? Context has meaning. Give a whole book.

I really enjoyed this collection.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"The important things always stay; what we lose are the things we thought were important, but which are, in fact, useless, like the false power we use to control the energy of love"
The Zahir

"Feelings - love, for example - do not grow old along with the body. Feelings form part of a world where there's no time, no space, no frontiers"

"Do you believe that your past loves have taught you to love better?
They've taught me to k

This read was very refreshing! I think I read this just when I needed to. There were a few quotes that I thought would make more sense when in context, but some challenged my thinking and others were very encouraging!

This was a feel good book at a time that I needed to feel good and I enjoyed it!

This is just a series of quotes from different books. In my opinion it's an excellent way to practice some Spanish, a healthy outlook on love, and it makes me want to read the books the quotes come from. The art work is gorgeous as well :). ...more

Like the sister companion Life collection of quotes the Best of Coehlo is a permanent to read over and over again.

This book is hands down one of the most beautifully printed books I had ever had the chance of reading. I stumbled upon it while I was browsing through the selves in my local Library of the British Council. It had a beautifully done cover with a lot of beautiful artwork through out the book. The paper felt so good to the hand as well.

What about the content of the book? Did I like it? Yes, it was okay. But I am sure that it would have not been such an interesting read had it been printed as any o

I don't know how to rate this. It isn't a short book; I was surprised that I did not recognise any quotes from the books I have read of his and I have read quite a few! It inspired me to move on next to "Witch of Portobello", as many quotes came from that book. I was surprised that only one (?) quote came from "Veronika decides to die". ...more
Not to be overreacting but you're book is totally awesome. You're innate writing skill is what the world should witness. Try joining NovelStar's writing competition because why not? Here's the link if you want to. (PC) (APP) you wish to join.

this book was kind of disappointing. there was a lack of emotional intelligence within the context. one second, i’d be feeling uplifted a little bit, and the other second, i would be in total confusion. i’m truly disappointed bc i loved his work in “The Alchemist”.
i’d rate this (2.5/5)

First of all, it's a delight to hold this book in hand.
Secondly, it's chock full of quotes that resonate with you.
Lastly, the bright and beautiful illustrations add on to the experience

A collection of quotes by famous writer Paulo Coelho.

Short and simple.

Easy to read and can be read repeatedly.
A very beatufiul book about love. Beautiful words, beautiful illustration, beautiful cover. This is going to be one of my all-time favorite book!

Quote taken from the book:
"L'amore non impedisce mai a un uomo di seguire la propria Leggenda Personale. Se questo accade, è soltanto perché non si trattava di vero amore, di quell'Amore che parla il Linguaggio del Mondo. (L'alchimista)

(Love never keeps a man from pursuing his Personal Legend. If he abandons it,it's because it wasn't true love,the love

Recommends it for: Fans of Paulo Coelho, and those who love poems and quotes.
Shelves: books-i-own
Many of the quotes were lovely and very beautiful, and some a little too religious in my opinion. They were, as the title says about love, which is very clearly in the quotes. But all things concidered a much inspiring collection of quotes.

It drives you to believe in real, empowering and boundless love.

Not as impressive as the design. The quotes seem random, and without proper context, they are meaningless.
I love the artistic colours!
