The Winner Stands Alone

“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will,either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once”

Arabic proverb – “Blessed be that which gives your children wings and roots”

“Roots – There is a place in the world where we are born,where we learn our mother tongue and discover how our ancestors overcame the problems they had to face. There always comes a point when we feel responsible for that place.”

“Wings – They reveal to us the endless horizons of the imagination,they carry us to our dreams and to distant places. It is our wings that allow us to know the roots of our fellow men and to learn from them.”

“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? ”
— Paulo Coelho The Winner Stands Alone

“Someone’s spirit, however, has no name; it is pure truth and inhabits a particular body for a certain period of time, and will, one day, leave it, and God won’t bother asking, “What’s your name?” when the soul arrives at the final judgment. God will only ask: “Did you love while you were alive?” For that is the essence of life: the ability to love, not the name we carry around on our passport, business card, and identity card.” The Winner Stands Alone Quotes

“The glory of the world is transitory, and we should not measure our lives by it, but by the choice we make to follow our personal legend, to believe in our utopias and to fight for our dreams.” Brazilian Academy of Letters Speech Paulo Coelho Quote

“Whenever we need to make a very important decision, it is best to trust impulse and passion, because reason usually tries to remove us from our dreams, saying that the time is not yet right. Reason is afraid of defeat, but intuition enjoys life and its challenges.” Paulo Coelho, Brazilian Academy of Letters Speech

“Love simply is.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“Writing reveals the personality”

“Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into a person you are not.”

“What does learning mean: accumulating knowledge or transforming your life?”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

Music isn’t just something that comforts or distracts us, it goes beyond that – it’s an ideology. You can judge people by the kind of music they listen to.

“You have understood what all great painters understand: in order to forget the rules, you must know them and respect them.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“We are not worshipping anyone or anything, we are simply communing with creation.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

I’m only happy when I think that God exists and is listening to me; but that isn’t enough to go on living, when nothing seems to make sense.

“Everything, absolutely everything on this earth makes sense, and even the smallest things are worthy of our consideration.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“Eat in moderation, but take pleasure in eating: it isn’t what enters a person’s mouth that’s evil, but what leaves it.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“People no longer try to decipher the mystery of life but choose instead to be a part of it.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“NO one can manipulate anyone else. In any relationship, both parties know what they are doing, even if one of them complains later on that they were used.”

“If there is any possible consolation in the tragedy of losing someone we love very much, it’s the necessary hope that perhaps it was for the best.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“Faith is not Desire. Faith is Will. Desires are things that need to be satisfied, whereas Will is a force. Will changes the space around us,…”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“If theater is ritual, then dance is too… It’s as if the threads connecting us to the rest of the world were washed clean of preconceptions and fears. When you dance, you can enjoy the luxury of being you.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn’t bring and never has brought happiness. On the contrary, it’s a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it’s sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we’re doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

Pity those who seek for shepherds, instead of longing for freedom! An encounter with superior energy is open to anyone but remains far from those who shift responsibility onto others. Our time on earth is sacred and we should celebrate every moment.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“Love fills everything. It cannot be desired because it is an end in itself. It cannot betray because it has nothing to do with possession. It cannot be held prisoner because it is a river and will overflow its banks. Anyone who tries to imprison love will cut off the spring that feeds it, and the trapped water will grow stagnant.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“We all have an unknown ability, which will probably remain unknown forever. And yet that ability can become our ally. Since it’s impossible to measure that ability or give it an economic value, it’s never taken seriously.”

“I was trying to come round to the idea that there might be an invisible reality capable of interfering in our lives, but the only reason I did so was because of a love I didn’t want to believe I felt but which was continuing to grow in a subtle, devastating way.”

“Instead of trying to prove that you’re better than you think, just laugh. Laugh at your worries and insecurities. View your anxieties with humor. It will be difficult at first, but you’ll gradually get used to it. Now go back and meet all those people who think you know everything. Convince yourself that they’re right, because we all know everything, it’s merely a question of believing.
Believe.”

“I was content in my universe and didn’t want to change it at all, even though I was being propelled in that direction.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

‘What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.’

“Naturally, if she respected the brush that she used, she would realize that in order to learn to write she must cultivate serenity and elegance. And serenity comes from the heart.”

‘Elegance isn’t a superficial thing; it’s the way mankind has found to honor life and work. That’s why, when you feel uncomfortable in that position, you mustn’t think that it’s false or artificial: it’s real and true precisely because it’s difficult.”

“Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It’s the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable.”

“Many of us are returning from a long journey during which we were forced to search for things that were of no interest to us. Now we realize that they were false. But this return cannot be made without pain, because we have been away for a long time and feel that we are strangers in out own land. It will take some time to find the friends who also left, and the places where our roots and treasures lie. But this will happen.”
— Paulo Coelho The Witch of Portobello

“Women always identify with one of the four classic archetypes: The Virgin, whose search springs from her complete independence, and everything she learns is a fruit of her ability to face challenges alone. The martyr finds her way to self-knowledge through pain, surrender and suffering.
The Saint, find her true reason for living in unconditional love and her ability to give without her asking anything in return. The witch justifies her existence by going in search of complete and limitless pleasure.”

“People who return from battle are either dead or stronger in spite of or because of their scars. It’s better that way; I’ve lived on a battlefield since I was born, but I’m still alive and I don’t need anyone to protect me.”

“Only the following items should be considered to be grave faults: not respecting another’s rights; allowing oneself to be paralyzed by fear; feeling guilty; believing that one does not deserve the good or ill that happens in one’s life; being a coward. We will love our enemies, but not make alliances with them. They were placed in our path in order to test our sword, and we should, out of respect for them, struggle against them. We will choose our enemies.” — Paulo Coelho Like the Flowing River

“Every human being has the right to search for happiness, and by ‘happiness’ is meant something that makes other people feel content.
Paulo Coelho Quotes From Like the Flowing River
“Every human being should keep alive within them the sacred flame of madness, but should behave as a normal person.”

“Every human being should know two languages: the language of society and the language of signs. One serves to communicate with other people, the other serves to understand God’s messages.” Paulo Coelho
“It is hereby decreed that the wall separating the sacred and the profane be torn down. From now on everything will be sacred.” Paulo Coelho Quotes From Like the Flowing River

“Everything that is done in the present affects the future in the form of consequences and affects the past in the form of redemption.”

“Every man has a feminine side, and every woman a masculine side. It is important to use discipline with intuition, and to use intuition with objectivity.”

“Only the following items should be considered to be grave faults: not respecting another’s rights: allowing oneself to be paralyzed by fear; feeling guilty; believing that one does not deserve the good or ill that happens in one’s life; being a coward. We will love our enemies, but not make alliances with them. They were placed in our path in order to test our sword, and we should, out of respect for them, struggle against them. We will choose our enemies.” Paulo Coelho Quotes From Like the Flowing River

“All religions lead to the same God, and all deserve the same respect. Anyone who chooses a religion is also choosing a collective way for worshiping and sharing the mysteries. Nevertheless, that person is the only one responsible for his or her actions along the way and has no right to shift responsibility for any personal decisions on to that religion.”

“A writer always wears glasses and never combs his hair. Half the time he feels angry about everything and the other half depressed. He spends most of his life in bars, arguing with other dishevelled, bespectacled writers. He says very ‘deep’ things. He always has amazing ideas for the plot of his next novel, and hates the one he has just published.”

“People make a lot of effort not to remember, not to accept their immense magical potential.” The Zahir quotes

“We need to forget what we think we are, so that we can really become what we are.”

“Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives.”
“…suffering occurs when we want other people to love us in the way we imagine we want to be loved, and not in the way that love should manifest itself – free and untrammeled, guiding us with its force and driving us on.”

“Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.”

“It’s not my story anymore: whenever I speak about the past now, I feel as if I were talking about something that has nothing to do with me. All that remains in the present are the voice, the presence, and the importance of fulfilling my mission. I don’t regret difficulties I experienced; I think they helped me to become the person I am today, I feel the way a warrior must feel after years of training; he doesn’t remember the details of everything he learned, but he knows how to strike when the time is right.” — Paulo Coelho The Zahir

“We need to forget what we think we are, so that we can really become what we are.”
The Zahir

“We can let the energy of love flow instead of placing it in a jar and leaving it aside.”
The Zahir

“No one is alone during tribulations – there’s always someone else thinking, rejoicing or suffering in the same way. This thought gives us strength to face the challenge that lies in front of us.“ The Zahir Quotes by Paulo Coelho

“What is real always finds a way of revealing itself.”

“Since the dawn of time man understands that suffering, faced with no fear, is his passport to freedom.” Eleven Minutes

“Anyone who is in love is making love the whole time, even when they’re not. When two bodies meet, it is just the cup overflowing. They can stay together for hours, even days. They begin the dance one day and finish it the next, or–such is the pleasure they experience–they may never finish it. No eleven minutes for them.” — Paulo Coelho Eleven Minutes

“Sometimes you get no second chance and that it’s best to accept the gifts the world offers you.” Eleven Minutes

“Passion: it can be used to describe the beauty of an earth-shaking meeting between two people… It’s there in the excitement of the unexpected, in the desire to do something with real fervor, in the certainty that one is going to realize a dream. Passion sends us signal that guide us through our lives, and it’s up to me to interpret those signs.” Eleven Minutes

“If I must be faithful to someone or something, then I have, first of all, to be faithful to myself.” Eleven Minutes quotes

“The great aim of every human being is to understand the meaning of total love. Love is not to be found in someone else, but in ourselves; we simply awaken it. But in order to do that, we need the other person. The universe only makes sense when we have someone to share our feelings with.”

“Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path.”

“When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.” — Paulo Coelho Eleven Minutes

“The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

“Every time you wish something, keep your eyes wide open, focus and know exactly what you want. No one hits the target with eyes closed.” The Devil and Miss Prym quotes

“She had just realized there were two things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune, when you least expected it. For at that moment, all our fears suddenly surface: the fear of setting off along a road heading who knows where, the fear of a life full of new challenges, the fear of losing forever everything that is familiar.”

“People want to change everything and, at the same time, want it all to remain the same.”

“Playing the part of a charitable soul was only for those who were afraid of taking a stand in life. It is always far easier to have faith in your own goodness than to confront others and fight for your rights. It is always easier to hear an insult and not retaliate than have the courage to fight back against someone stronger than yourself; we can always say we’re not hurt by the stones others throw at us, and it’s only at night – when we’re alone and our wife or our husband or our school friend is asleep – that we can silently grieve over our own cowardice.”

A lot of people are critical of arms manufacturers, but they will continue to exist until there’s not a single weapon left on the face of the earth. Because as long as one weapon remains, there will always have to be another, to preserve the fragile balance.”

“It isn’t the desire to abide by the law that makes everyone behave as society requires, but the fear of punishment. Each one of us carries a gallows inside us.”

“She was glad to have been the first to reveal to those people the evil hidden in the depths of their false, ingenuous souls. They were all dreaming of the chance to commit a murder – only dreaming, mind you, because they would never actually do anything. They would spend the rest of their lives asleep, endlessly telling themselves how noble they were, how incapable of committing an injustice, ready to defend the village’s dignity at whatever cost, yet aware that terror alone had prevented them from killing an innocent. They would congratulate themselves every morning on keeping their integrity, and blame themselves each night for that missed opportunity.”

“Since we can never see the enemy – because if we take this tale to its logical conclusion, our real enemy is God for putting us through everything we’ve suffered – we vent our frustrations on everything around us. It’s a desire for vengeance that can never be satisfied, because it’s directed against life itself.”

“None is good, says the Lord. No one. We should stop pretending to a goodness that offends God and accept our faults: if one day we have to accept a wager with the Devil, let us remember that our Father who is in Heaven did exactly the same in order to save the soul of His servant Job.” | Paulo Coelho Quotes

“A man has to choose. This is where lies his strength: in the power of his decisions.” The Fifth Mountain

“If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.” The Fifth Mountain

“The Lord listens to the prayers of those who ask to be able to forget hatred, but is deaf to those who want to flee love.” The fifth mountain quotes

“All life’s battles teach us something, even those we lose…. you’ll discover that you have defended lies, deceived yourself, or suffered for foolishness. If you’re a good warrior, you will not blame yourself for this, but neither will you allow your mistakes to repeat themselves.”
“… a man must choose… therein lies his strength: the power of his decisions… he who makes no choice is dead in the eyes of the Lord…
“There is no tragedy, only the unavoidable. Everything has its reason for being: you only need to distinguish what is temporary from what is lasting. “

“What is temporary?… The unavoidable… and what is lasting?… The lessons of the unavoidable.”

“I discovered something: the meaning of my life was whatever I wanted it to be.”

“Why did you attack at night?… there is no custom that forbids it… all of you were so preoccupied with custom that you forgot that times change.“

“The unavoidable always happens.”

“If you have a past that dissatisfies you, then forget it now.”

“Ask the children, they know everything… because… the children have no past.
A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”

“Cowards never allow their hearts to blaze with this fire: all they desire is for the changed situation to quickly return to what it was before, so they can go on living their lives and thinking in their customary way. The brave however, set afire that which was old and, even a the cost of great internal suffering, abandon everything and continue onward.”

“There are moments when God demands our obedience. but there are moments in which He wishes to test our will and challenges us to understand His love.”

Take advantage of the chance that tragedy has given you; not everyone is capable of doing so.”
“Sadness does not last forever when we walk in the direction of that which we always desired.”
“It’s always necessary to know when a stage of one’s life has ended. If you stubbornly cling to it after the need has passed, you lose the joy and meaning of the rest. And you risk being shaken to your senses by God.”

“But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.

The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.”

    The Winner Stands Alone

    “Life has many ways of testing a person’s will,either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once”

    Arabic proverb – “Blessed be that which gives your children wings and roots”

    Roots – There is a place in the world where we are born,where we learn our mother tongue and discover how our ancestors overcame the problems they had to face. There always comes a point when we feel responsible for that place.

    Wings – They reveal to us the endless horizons of the imagination,they carry us to our dreams and to distant places. It is our wings that allow us to know the roots of our fellow men and to learn from them.
