Aleph by Paulo Coelho

Life decided to separate us.

A loyal adversary who would not let me win a fight I didn't deserve.

Only women believe in love. Men don't.

I don't see why I shouldn't forgive the man I love.

Hating is very wearisome.

I will be capable of loving regardless of wether I am loved in return, of giving even when I have nothing, of drying my tears even while I weep.

Good fighters use their opponent's energy.

Conflicts are for undiscerning souls.

A life without cause is a life without effect.

Love being stronger than the individual.

Yes, but love us made up of choices.

I am crying because there is no other way to show what I feel. I am alive.

I'm afraid of my fear.

Only two things can reveal life great secrets: suffering and love.

Our relationship is more alive than ever.

I haven't been married for more than 20 years to the same person, because neither she nor I have remained the same that's why I don't expect her to behave as she did we first met. Nor does she want me to be the person I was when I found her. They want everything to stay the same and the consequence of that is pain.

We are not the person other people wish we were. We are who we decide to be. It's always easy to blame others.

Time does not pass, it merely changes.

If you don't believe it, then there's no point in my trying to explain.

A departure followed by a return and a return followed by a departure.

They are listening but not hearing.

Natural rivalry that sometimes exists between women

My brain has been working harder than my body.

You're lucky you're in love with a man which made you fall in love with life again.

People meet when they need to meet.

Train your heart.

Don't let me win without having deserved the pleasure of being the best.

Controlling your aggression in order not to harm the other.

Time is not a casette tape that can be wound and rewound.

A couple sitting on a beach, gazing at the same sea, which looks calm and welcoming.

We married a year later as if it were the most obvious and natural thing in the world to do.

Words are life set down on paper.

No one can learn to love by following a manual.

Don't be intimidated by other people's opinion.

No one ever loses anyone.

I know very few people capable of receiving even when gift is given with love and generosity.

Dreamers can never be tamed.

Life is the train, not the station.

Love is the only thing that will save us, independent of any mistakes we may make. Love is always stronger.

It's like a dam holding back the ocean (holding back tears).

Anyone who knows God cannot describe him, anyone who can describe God does not know Him.

Time neither mover nor is stationary.

We learn in the past but we are not the result of that.

Doubt that drives us forward.

If we had spoken before, you would not have been ripe. If we were to talk later, you would have rotted.

Time doesn't pass.

Past and future only exist in our memory.

Stop repeating the same lesson, you won't learn anything new that way.

We always try to interpret things in accordance with what we want and not as they are.

Courage can attract fear and adulation but willpower requires patience and commitments.

No life is complete without a touch of madness.

Words are tears that have been written down. Tears are words that need to be shed.

We need to be strangers to ourselves.

In her eyes, I saw both love and death.

Those who set off in search of their kingdom know that they are going to find instead, only challenges, long periods of wanting, unexpected changes, or even worse, nothing.

If we seek something, rgar same things is seeking us--I am all the people I meet amd who have understood my soul though my art.

What hurts us is what heals us, to live is to experience things not sit around and ponder about life.
