Quote from Paulo Coelho:
The danger of an adventure is worth a thousand days of ease and comfort.
Be like the fountain that overflows, not like the cistern that merely contains.
I don't regret the painful times; I bare my scars as if they were medals.
Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.
Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons. Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said 'yes' when he wanted to say 'no.'
Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved.
That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.
A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it be from a high place.
Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose--and commit myself to--what is best for me.
"A philosophy of life: I'm an adventurer, looking for treasure."
In these words lies all his power: He chose the path along which he is walking and so has no complaints.
The warrior of the light has a destiny to fulfill.
"I learned the most important lesson of my life: that the extraordinary is not the birthright of a chosen and privileged few, but of all people, even the humblest. That is my one certainty: we are all the manifestation of the divinity of God."
He tries to show each person how much they are capable of achieving.
Each stone, each bend cries welcome to him. He identifies with the mountains and the streams, he sees something of his own soul in the plants and the animals and the birds of the field.
