[...] As you take more risks you see opportunities more easily.

You become part of the real world again, the mundane, the ordinary, from where there's no escape. (The Cardinal to Capac Raimi)”

Paulo Coelho
“Love doesn't ask many questions, because if we stop to think we become fearful. It's an inexplicable fear; it's difficult to even describe it. Maybe it's the fear of being scorned, of not being accepted, or of breaking the spell. It's ridiculous, but that's the way it is. That's why you don't ask - you act. As you've said many times, you have to take risks.”
Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
