“Really important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other. Generally speaking, these meetings occur when we reach a limit, when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. These meetings are waiting for us, but more often than not, we avoid them happening. If we are desperate, though, if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself, and our universe changes direction.”- Paul Coelho, Eleven minutes.

"Human beings can withstand a week without water, two weeks without food, many years of homelessness, but not loneliness. It is the worst of all tortures, the worst of all sufferings. We're all tormented by that same destructive feeling, the sense that no one else on the planet cared about us."
- Paul Coelho.
"The desert takes our dreams away from us, and they don't always return... Those who don't return become a part of the clouds, a part of the animals that hide in the ravines and of the water that comes from the earth. They become part of everything … They become the Soul of the World."
- Paul Coelho, The Alchemist.
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
"Make peace with your past so it won't destroy your present."- Paul Coelho
"One day you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the things you've always wanted. Do it now."- Paul Coelho
