Se você tiver que chorar, chore como as crianças. Você já foi criança um dia, e uma das primeiras coisas que aprendeu em sua vida foi chorar; porque faz parte da vida. Jamais esqueça que você é livre, e que demonstrar emoções não é vergonha.
—  Paulo Coelho.  
Be present. Make love. Make tea. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.
—  Paulo Coelho
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, Eleven Minutes
