Just completed the book
“The Winner Stands Alone” by Paulo Coelho
If you love someone, you must be prepared to set them free.
People are never satisfied. If they have a little, they want more. If they have a lot, they want still more. Once they have more, they wish they could be happy with little, but are incapable of making the slightest effort in that direction.
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.
Talent is a universal gift, but it takes a lot of courage to use it. Don’t be afraid to be the best.
A man’s dignity isn’t measured by the people he has around him when he’s at the peak of his success, but by his ability not to forget those who helped him when his need was greatest.
Life sometimes separates people so that they can realize how much they mean to each other.
The mirror reflects perfectly; it makes no mistakes because it doesn’t think. To think is to make mistakes.
If you believe in victory, then victory will believe in you.
Whenever someone dies, a part of the universe dies too. Everything a person felt, experience and saw dies with them, like tears in the rain.
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?
We are all a part of the divine spark. All have a purpose in creation and that purpose is called Love. That love, however, shouldn’t be concentrated in just one person, it should be scattered throughout the world, waiting to be discovered. Wake up that love. What is gone cannot return. What is about to arrive needs to be recognized.
How people treat other people is a direct reflection of how they feel about themselves.
Even if you slept with every man on Earth, my love will still survive.
Success is both an addiction and an enslavement…
So…go and have a wonderful read…..
