Paulo Coelho de Souza is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist and the recipient of numerous international awards. He is best known for his widely translated novel The Alchemist.
When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.
One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.
Don’t waste your time with explanations: people only hear what they want to hear.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.
Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.
