Aleph – Paulo Coelho

Standard

Our life is a constant journey, from birth to death. The landscape changes, the people change, our needs change, but the train keeps moving. Life is the train, not the station.

This is what marks out the warrior: the knowledge that the willpower and courage are not the same thing. Courage can attract fear and adulation, but willpower requires patience and commitment.

 

Words are tears that have been written down. Tears are words that need to be shed. Without them, joy loses all its brilliance and sadness has no end.

 

“The light falls only on the stranger.” An Arabic proverb.

 

“No oneis a prophet in his own land.”

 

Portuguese proverb “What can’t be cured must be endured.”

 

Every note leaves in each of us a memory, but it is the melody as a whole that tells a story, the story of someone wanting to get closer to another person and who keeps on trying, despite repeated rejections.

 

“If you want to see a ranbow you have to learn to like the rain.”

 

I am in the Aleph, the point at which everything is in the same place at the same time.

 

Tears are the blood of the soul.

 

Expand your energies and you will remain young.

 

Tao Te Ching

 

Place all your feelings outside of yourself and you will be renewed.

 

… words are life set down on paper. So seek out the company of others.

 

Dreamers can never be tamed.

 

Time neither moves nor is stationary. Time changes.

 

If you rely on experience, you’ll simply keep applying old solutions to new problems.

 

I undersatnd that everything is connected, that all roads meet, and that all rivers flow into the same sea.

 

It is said that each time we embrace someone warmly, we gain an extra day of life.

 

I love you because all the loves in the world are like different rivers flowing into the same lake, where they meet and transformed into a single love that becomes rain and blesses the earth.

 

Life is dream from which we wake only when we meet death.
