Paulo Coelho
“You are someone who is different, but who wants to be the same as everyone else. And that in my view is a serious illness. God chose you to be different. Why are you disappointing God with this kind of attitude?”
Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

Paulo Coelho, The Witch of Portobello

Malala Yousafzai
“Me habían regalado un libro de Paulo Coelho... "Cuando quieres algo, todo el universo se conjura para que realices tu deseo", dice. Creo que Paulo Coelho no se ha topado nunca con los talibanes y nuestros políticos inútiles.”

Paulo Coelho
“icen que a lo largo de nuestra vida tenemos dos grandes amores; uno con el que te casas o vives para siempre, puede que el padre o la madre de tus hijos, esa persona con la que consigues la compenetración máxima para estar el resto de tu vida junto a ella.

Y dicen que hay un segundo gran amor, una persona que perderás siempre. Alguien con quien naciste conectado, tan conectado que las fuerzas de la química escapan a la razón y te impedirá, siempre, alcanzar un final feliz. Hasta que cierto día dejarás de intentarlo. Te rendirás y buscarás a esa otra persona que acabarás encontrando.

Pero te aseguro que no pasarás una sola noche sin necesitar otro beso suyo, o tan siquiera discutir una vez más. Todos sabéis de qué estoy hablando, porque mientras estabais leyendo esto os ha venido su nombre a la cabeza.

Te librarás de él o de ella, dejarás de sufrir, conseguirás encontrar la paz (le sustituirás por la calma), pero te aseguro que no pasará un día en que desees que estuviera aquí para perturbarte…

Porque, a veces, se desprende más energía discutiendo con alguien a quien amas que haciendo el amor con alguien a quien aprecias.”
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

Paulo Coelho
“Life becomes interesting for the possibility to fulfill a dream.”
Paulo Coelho

Roman Payne
“I ran across an excerpt today (in English translation) of some dialogue/narration from the modern popular writer, Paulo Coelho in his book: Aleph.(Note: bracketed text is mine.)... 'I spoke to three scholars,' [the character says 'at last.'] ...two of them said that, after death, the [sic (misprint, fault of the publisher)] just go to Paradise. The third one, though, told me to consult some verses from the Koran. [end quote]' ...I can see that he's excited. [narrator]' ...Now I have many positive things to say about Coelho: He is respectable, inspiring as a man, a truth-seeker, and an appealing writer; but one should hesitate to call him a 'literary' writer based on this quote. A 'literary' author knows that a character's excitement should be 'shown' in his or her dialogue and not in the narrator's commentary on it. Advice for Coelho: Remove the 'I can see that he's excited' sentence and show his excitement in the phrasing of his quote.(Now, in defense of Coelho, I am firmly of the opinion, having myself written plenty of prose that is flawed, that a novelist should be forgiven for slipping here and there.)Lastly, it appears that a belief in reincarnation is of great interest to Mr. Coelho ... Just think! He is a man who has achieved, (as Leonard Cohen would call it), 'a remote human possibility.' He has won lots of fame and tons of money. And yet, how his preoccupation with reincarnation—none other than an interest in being born again as somebody else—suggests that he is not happy!”

“I saw that she didn't want to answer that question and so I asked again: when mouths close it's because there's something important to be said.”

“The reason why people fail to achieve their dreams is because they stop pursuing them.”

“And he always checks that he carries three things with him: faith, hope, and love.”
Paulo Coelho, Warrior of the Light

“When people consult me,it's not that I'm reading the future;I am guessing at the future.The future belongs to God,and it is only he who reveals it,under extraordinary circumstances.How do I guess at the future?Based on the omens of the present.The secret is here in the present.If you pay attention to the present,you can improve upon it.

Paulo Coelho
“i believe in One God,though you think that the gods dwell in those clouds on the Fifth Mountain.i don't want to argue whether my God is stronger or more powerful;I would speak not of our differences but of our similarities.Tragedy has united us in a single sentiment:despair.Why has that come to pass?Because we thought that everything was answered and decided in our souls,and we could accept no changes.”

Paulo Coelho
“-Tanultam valamit a Sötét Éjszakáról-mondta az erdőnek, amely most csöndes volt.-Megtanultam, hogy az Isten-keresés egy Sötét Éjszaka. Hogy a Hit egy Sötét Éjszaka. Nem csoda. Az ember minden napja egy sötét éjszaka. Senki sem tudhatja előre, hogy mi fog történni a következő percben, az emberek mégis mennek előre. Mert bíznak. Mert van hitük.”
Paulo Coelho, Brida
