Wenn wir lieben, streben wir immer danach, besser zu werden als wir sind. Wenn wir danach streben, besser zu werden als wir sind, wird auch alles um uns herum besser.
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.Romantische SprüchePaulo Coelho in Der Alchimist

Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.HerzPaulo Coelho in Der Alchimist
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.Paulo Coelho in Der Alchimist

The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.LiebePaulo Coelho in Am Ufer des Rio Piedra saß ich und weinte
But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.Paulo Coelho in Am Ufer des Rio Piedra saß ich und weinte
I've been in love before, it's like a narcotic. At first it brings the euphoria of complete surrender. The next day you want more. You're not addicted yet, but you like the sensation, and you think you can still control things.You think about the person you love for two minutes then forget them for three hours. But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget him for two minutes. If he's not there, you feel like an addict who can't get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you're willing to do anything for love.Paulo Coelho in Am Ufer des Rio Piedra saß ich und weinte
People never learn anything by being told, they have to find out for themselves.Paulo Coelho in Veronika beschließt zu sterben
If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.Paulo Coelho in Der Alchimist
Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.Leben, WeinPaulo Coelho in Brida
I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living now.Paulo Coelho in Der Alchimist
Jeder, der einmal etwas verloren hat, wovon er dachte, es wäre seins, hat schlussendlich verstanden, dass einem nichts wirklich gehört.
Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally comes to realise that nothing really belongs to them.VerlustPaulo Coelho
No one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.Paulo Coelho in Elf Minuten
In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.Paulo Coelho in Am Ufer des Rio Piedra saß ich und weinte
Anyone who loves in the expectation of being loved in return is wasting their time.Paulo Coelho in Der Dämon und Fräulein Prym
Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives.Falsche FreundePaulo Coelho in Der Zahir
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. On the contrary, it's a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it's sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we're doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.Paulo Coelho in Die Hexe von Portobello
When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds.Paulo Coelho in Elf Minuten
Lass deinen Verstand niemals deinem Herzen sagen, was zu tun ist. Der Verstand gibt schnell auf.

Du bist das, was du selbst zu sein glaubst.
You are what you believe yourself to be.CharakterPaulo Coelho in Die Hexe von Portobello
