I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter.

The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness in winning.

One day you'll wake up and there won't be any more time to do the things you've always wanted

What is success? It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.

Tolerance and compassion are qualities of fearless people.

The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

One day, you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the thing you've always wanted. Do it now.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.

One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.

In our obsessive wish to arrive, we often forget the most important thing, which is the journey.

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

I am not designed to come second or third. I am designed to win.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

A mistake repeated more than once is a decision.

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.

Never give up. When your heart becomes tired, just walk with your legs - but move on.

I feel grateful because I have a lot of love in my life.

I found the person I'm sharing my life with. I have a good man.

When we love, we always strive to become better than we are.

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

Life has a way of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen at once.

The more you trust your intuition, the more empowered you become, the stronger you become, and the happier you become.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

We have to stop and be humble enough to understand that there is something called mystery.

What's the world's greatest lie?... It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate.

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.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

If you're brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.

Life is too short, or too long, for me to allow myself the luxury of living it so badly.

Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.

Life is always a matter of waiting for the right moment to act.

Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.

Free trade is very important if we respect equality among nations.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

Stress, anxiety, and depression are caused when we are living to please others.

Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself.

Fashion is not just beauty, it's about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong.

On the contrary, I'm a strong believer in the necessity of imperfection coming into the film.

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.

And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.

The human voice cannot mount up into these boundless solitudes.

I did a salad, but I didn't do a garden.

Everyone is innocent unless proven otherwise.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter.

You have two choices: to control your mind or to let your mind control you.

You don't have to have an attitude if you're famous.

If you're a nobody, if your work has no impact, then it deserves to be praised.

If, however, you climb out of that state of mediocrity and are a success, then your defying 'the law' and deserve to be punished.

My greatest desire is that the hope that has overcome fear in my country will help vanquish it around the world.

I believe in feeling connected. Love is something that grows, that comes from nourishment; it builds. But there is a great feeling that happens, that is telling you, I don't want to leave this room!

I don't like parties. I prefer something more intimate, just for the closest people.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.

I've never been to the gym. I do nothing.

I was so embarrassed about mispronouncing words. I just knew how to smile.

The Peruvian faces are completely different from that faces in Argentina and in Brazil.

I have never made a friend from whom I could not separate, and I have never made an enemy that I could not approach.

Fear is exciting for me.

Up until then, whenever anyone had mentioned the possibility of making a film adaptation, my answer had always been, ‘No, I’m not interested.’ I believe that each reader creates his own film inside his head, gives faces to the characters, constructs every scene, hears the voices, smells the smells. And that is why, whenever a reader goes to see a film based on a novel that he likes, he leaves feeling disappointed, saying: ‘the book is so much better than the film.

 image quote by Paulo Coelho

A child can teach an adult three things: To be happy for no reason, to always be curious, to fight tirelessly for something.

If pain must come, may it come quickly.

Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.

Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say yes to life?
