"Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good."

"Lately I’ve been thinking about who I want to love, and how I want to love, and why I want to love the way I want to love, and what I need to learn to love that way, and who I need to become to become the kind of love I want to be…and when I break it all down, when I whittle it into a single breath, it essentially comes out like this: Before I die, I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know they need to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer, and be absolutely certain I will keep it safe. I will keep it safe."

"I know it seems hard sometimes but Remember one thing through every dark night, there’s a bright day after that So no matter how hard it get, stick your chest out, Keep your head up, and handle it."

"Always do your best, don’t let the pressure make you panic
And when you get stranded, and things don’t go the way you planned it
Dreaming of riches in a position of making a difference."

"Breathe. It’s okay. You’re going to be okay. Just breathe. Breathe, and remind yourself of all the times in the past you felt this scared. All of the times you felt this anxious and this overwhelmed. All of the times you felt this level of pain. And remind yourself how each time, you made it through. Life has thrown so much at you, and despite how difficult things have been, you’ve survived. Breathe and trust that you can survive this too. Trust that this struggle is part of the process. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem, you will make it."

my mom taught me the therapeutic power of cleaning. open all the windows. throw out the old. wipe down the entire house. burn some incense. roast some coffee. then rest. that way the tears from last night don’t feel as heavy.

Happy Birthday, Paulo Coelho, born 24 August 1947
Top 10 Paulo Coelho Quotes
The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.
Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.
The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
Tears are words that need to be written.
Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally comes to realise that nothing really belongs to them.
When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.
Life is too short, or too long, for me to allow myself the luxury of living it so badly.
People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves.
Certain things in life simply have to be experienced -and never explained. Love is such a thing.
Paulo Coelho is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist.
