Paulo Coelho: the fairy godmother of weaving together beautiful stories that can be unraveled from various ends to reveal life principles.
Here are some of my favorite highlights from his novel, “Warrior Of The Light”.
Repeated experiences have one aim: teach him what he does not want to learn.
In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong.
He tries to establish what he can truly rely on. And he always checks that he carries three things with him: faith, hope, and love.
No one is stupid and that life teaches everyone, however long that may take.
He continues to encourage others because this is also a way of encouraging himself.
You do not drown simply by plunging into the water, you drown if you stay beneath the surface.
God uses solitude to teach us to live with others. Rage to show infinite value of peace. Boredom to underline importance of adventures and spontaneity. Silence to teach us to use words responsibly.
Those who look on other people’s misery with indifference are the most miserable of all.
