Paulo Coelho

"If there hadn't been a sixth day, man would not exist; copper would always be copper; and lead just lead. It's true that everything has its Personal Legend, but one day that Personal Legend will be realized. So each thing has to transform itself into something better, and to acquire a new Personal Legend, until, someday, the Soul of the World becomes one thing only."
"Life is too short, or too long, for me to allow myself the luxury of living it so badly."
"People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of."
"Whenever he saw the sea, or a fire, he fell silent, impressed by their elemental force."
"When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too."
"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."
"And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."
"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."
"If I am really a part of your dream, you'll come back one day."
"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."
"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."
"And I began to feel sorry for myself; for so many years, my drawer full of memories had held the same old stories."
