Our soul is governed by four invisible forces: love, death, power and time.
We must love because we are loved by God.
We must be aware of the Unwanted Visitor if we are fully to understand life.
We must struggle in order to grow, but without becoming trapped by whatever power we might gain from that, because we know that such power is worthless.
Finally, we must accept that our soul, although eternal, is, at this moment, caught in the web of time, with all its possibilities and limitations.
89 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Not everyone has to be happy all the time. Indeed, no one can be. You have to learn to deal with the realities of life
90 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Love is above everything else, and there is no hatred in love, only the occasional mistake.
91 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Love is an act of faith in another person, and love’s face should always be wrapped in mystery. Love should be experienced and enjoyed all the time, but, if we try to understand it, the magic will vanish.
92 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Controlling your aggression in order not to harm the other is the Path to Peace.
93 Quote by Paulo Coelho
The warrior of light is not concerned with results. He examines his heart and asks: “Did I fight the Good Fight?” If the answer is “yes”, he can rest. If the answer is “no”, he takes up his sword and begins training all over again.
94 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Do not fight in order to prove that you are right or to impose your ideas or ideals on someone else. Only accept the fight as a way of keeping your spirit clean and your will spotless. When the fight is over, both sides will emerge as winners, because they tested their limitations and their abilities.
95 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Sometimes we are gripped by an uncontrollable feeling of sadness. We realise that the day’s magic moment has passed and we did nothing with it. Then life hides away its magic and its art.
96 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Why is Love more important than Faith?
Because Faith is merely the path that leads us to the Greater Love.
Why is Love more important than Charity?
Because Charity is merely one of the manifestations of Love.
97 Quote by Paulo Coelho
A warrior of light is in the world in order to help his fellow man and not in order to condemn his neighbour.
98 Quote by Paulo Coelho
A warrior always knows what is worth fighting for. He never gets embroiled in pointless battles, and never wastes his time on provocations.
99 Quote by Paulo Coelho
The truth is that the great revolutions and the great advances made by humanity were made by people like us, the only difference being that they had the courage to make a key decision when times were difficult.
100 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Pursuing a dream has its price. It might demand that we change our habits, it might cause us problems, might lead to disappointment. However high the price, though, it is never as high as the price paid by someone who has not lived.
101 Quote by Paulo Coelho
Love has no rules. We can try to follow the rule book, to control our heart, to determine how we will behave, but that is all nonsense. The heart decides, and it is what the heart decides that matters.
