What is a teacher? I'll tell you: it isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.LehrerPaulo Coelho in Die Hexe von Portobello
After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn't bring and never has brought happiness.

Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.Paulo Coelho in Die Hexe von Portobello
