Paulo Coelho is one of my favorites authors. I have read almost all of his book and, his best-seller “The Alchemist” more than once. Yesterday, my 6-year-old son declared that he knew all his books by heart and he wanted to hear something different before his sleep. So, he chose randomly a book from my library and it was “The Alchemist“. Fortunately, the beginning of the book doesn’t differ from a fairy tale about a shepherd who wants to travel all over the world with his herd of sheep. After a couple of pages, my son had slept, but this incident reminded me how many beautiful and inspiring quotes has Paulo Coelho.

In my school years, I used to write them on my journals among drawings and collages. Here I gathered my favorite motivational quotes from his books. I hope to find them interesting and inspiring, too. Of course, for the number one, I chose maybe his most well-known quote…

I. “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

II. “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.

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

III. “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

IV.  “The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

V. “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

VI. “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.

X. “We can never judge the lives of others because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.
