Paulo Coelho Quotes from The Alchemist and his other books about life, adventure and love

1.) Be Brave. Take Risks. Nothing can substitute experience. – Paulo Coelho

2.) “People want to change everything and, at the same time want it all to remain the same.” – Paulo Coelho

3.) “People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” – Paulo Coelho

4.) “You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his personal legend. If he abandons that pursuit, it’s because it wasn’t a true love…The love that speaks the language of the world.” – Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho Quotes About Life and Dreams

5.) “If you want to see a rainbow you have to learn to see the rain.” – Paulo Coelho

6.) “Tears are words that need to be written.” – Paulo Coelho

7.) “If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” – Paulo Coelho

8.) “It takes huge effort to free yourself from memory.” – Paulo Coelho

9.) “When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.” – Paulo Coelho

10.) “Waiting hurts. Forgetting hurts. But not knowing which decision to take can sometimes be the most painful.” – Paulo Coelho

11.) “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It is lethal.”– Paulo Coelho 

Paulo Coelho Quotes About Love

12.) “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”– Paulo Coelho

13.) “Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path. No one wants their life thrown into chaos.

That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded. Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems.

They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything. 

Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it – which of these two attitudes is the least destructive? I don’t know.” 

– Paulo Coelho

14.) “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

15.) “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”– Paulo Coelho

16.) “But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence.

If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.

– Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho quotes on love and family

17.) The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.” ― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

17.) “Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn’t have the courage to say “yes” to life?”– Paulo Coelho

18.) “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”– Paulo Coelho

19.) “When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.”– Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho quotes love and writing

20.) “We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal.

We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

 Paulo Coelho

21.) “A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”– Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho quotes on dreams and learning

22.) “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”– Paulo Coelho

23.) “No matter what he does, every person on earth plays a central role in the history of the world. And normally he doesn’t know it.”– Paulo Coelho

24.) “Choosing a path meant having to miss out on others. She had a whole life to live, and she was always thinking that, in the future, she might regret the choices she made now. “I’m afraid of committing myself,” she thought to herself. She wanted to follow all possible paths and so ended up following none.

Even in that most important area of her life, love, she had failed to commit herself. After her first romantic disappointment, she had never again given herself entirely. She feared pan, loss, and separation.

These things were inevitable on the path to love, and the only way of avoiding them was by deciding not to take that path at all. In order not to suffer, you had to renounce love. It was like putting out your own eyes not to see the bad things in life.” ― Brida

Paulo Coelho quotes on fear

25.) “When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”– Paulo Coelho

26.) “Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.– Paulo Coelho

27.) “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”– Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho quotes on love and happiness

28.) “After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn’t bring and never has brought happiness. On the contrary, it’s a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it’s sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we’re doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.” ― Paulo Coelho

29.) “Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life.” ― Paulo Coelho

30.) “Human beings can withstand a week without water, two weeks without food, many years of homelessness, but not loneliness. It is the worst of all tortures, the worst of all sufferings.” ― Paulo Coelho

31.) “Joy is sometimes a blessing, but it is often a conquest. Our magic moment help us to change and sends us off in search of our dreams. Yes, we are going to suffer, we will have difficult times, and we will experience many disappointments — but all of this is transitory it leaves no permanent mark. And one day we will look back with pride and faith at the journey we have taken.” ― Paulo Coelho

32.) “Everyone believes the world’s greatest lie…” says the mysterious old man.
“What is the world’s greatest lie?” the little boy asks.
The old man replies, “It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”
― Paulo Coelho

33.) “Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. It’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.”
― Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho quotes on life

34.) “This time I m not going to tell you a story. I’ll just say that insanity is the inability to communicate your ideas. It’s as if you were in a foreign country, able to see and understand everything that’s going on around you but incapable of explaining what you need to know or of being helped, because you don’t understand the language they speak there.” ― Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

35.) “Even if it is only for a matter of moments, because those moments bring with them a Love so intense that it justifies the rest of our days.” ― Paulo Coelho, Brida

36.) “This was the kiss I had waited for so long – a kiss born by the river of our childhood, when we didn’t yet know what love meant. A kiss that had been suspended in the air as we grew, that had traveled in the world in the souvenir of a medal, and that had remained hidden behind piles of books. A kiss that had been lost and now was found. In the moment of that kiss were years of searching, disillusionment and impossible dreams.” ― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

37.) “All religions lead to the same God, and all deserve the same respect. Anyone who chooses a religion is also choosing a collective way for worshipping and sharing the mysteries. Nevertheless, that person is the only one responsible for his or her actions along the way and has no right to shift responsibility for any personal decisions on to that religion.”
 Paulo Coelho, Like the Flowing River

Paulo Coelho Quotes from The Alchemist and other books

38.) “When I experienced humiliation and yet kept on walking, I understood that I was free to choose my destiny. Perhaps there’s something wrong with me, I don’t know, perhaps my marriage was a dream I couldn’t understand while it lasted.

All I know is that even though I can live without her, I would still like to see her again, to say what I never said when we were together: I love you more than I love myself. If I could say that, then I could go on living, at peace with myself, because that love has redeemed me.”

 Paulo Coelho, The Zahir

In order not to suffer, you have to renounce love.It was like putting out your own eyes in order not to see the bad things in life.” ― Paulo Coelho, Brida

43.) “Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure. You’ve got to find the treasure, so that everything you have learned along the way can make sense.”
― Paulo Coelho

44.) “One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

45.) “The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.” ― Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

47.) “If you start by promising what you don’t even have yet, you’ll lose your desire to work towards getting it.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

15 Best Quotes About Loving Someone Who Doesn’t LOVE YOU Back

true love doesnt exist quotes


“True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does” ― Torquato Tasso


Love is probably the most powerful and most wanted of emotions. Everyone seems to be on the constant lookout for it. Those who have it want more and those who don’t have too much of it obviously are looking to satiate their appetites. There is a song in an Indian cinema – and there are pretty similar euphemisms in English movies too – in which the protagonist talks about breaking away stars and the moon from the sky for his one true love. Movies are a pretty good reflection of the mood of the times and it is quite evident how much power love has over our imaginations.

You actually “Fall” in Love!

“True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does” says Torquato Tasso. This statement along with being self-explanatory is also quite evident. When you are in love, another person becomes far more important than yourself, i.e. you undermine a part of yourself – if not the whole – in a love affair. When this happens, it is pretty evident in your actions and thoughts. True love thus does not happen voluntarily, you fall into it!

How do you know if it is True Love or just another infatuation?

Time is the sturdiest of tests and is probably the best way to ascertain if you are truly in love or not. If you feel the same passion and love towards your partner, even after months and years, as you felt at the start of your relationship, you can be more or less certain that it is quite serious. There are some other things too which help you ascertain it for yourself:

  • What you feel for your partner is unconditional, i.e. you do not want or need anything in return from him/her and just want to engulf them in your love.
  • You are perennially happy when around your love and even though you are not always smiling like a fool, their mere presence acts to calm you down even in the most forbidding of situations.
  • You do not judge each other but accept the other person and love them for who they are with all their insecurities and imperfections. You know that nobody is born perfect and probably never will be able to achieve perfection either, but they are the perfect fit for you.
  • You feel each other’s feelings deeply. When they get frustrated, you can feel yourself tensing up and when they are happy you have butterflies in your stomach. You have the utmost levels of compassion, sympathy and understanding between each other.
  • And finally, when in true love, you don’t feel the need to say “I Love You”. Both of you can feel it even when you are completely silent. But this should not undermine the importance of communicating your feelings. You don’t need to, but saying that you love your partner is not inadvisable.

Love transcends colour, caste, religion or any other mentionable boundary. When you find the love of your life, you will know as will the other person. Till then, happy searching!

True Love Quotes

true love doesnt exist quotes

15-year-old boy: “Last year I was in love. She didn’t like me, and I suffered. What I didn’t do is to follow her around like a puppy… my grandmother told me to wait until I’m not in love with that girl… My grandmother is wise; she was right. I forget all about my grief in a few short months.”

When we fall in love with people that don’t love us back, we think we can’t help it. However, even though you can’t control with whom you fell in love, you have a bit of control if you stay in love.

Love is chemical. When you fell in love with the right person, your brain producers happy chemicals and happy thoughts. Yet, when you fell in love with the wrong person, the love you feel becomes poisonous.

15-year-old girl: “I’m in love with a classmate. He ignores me like I don’t exist… But he’s so cute… I must do whatever it takes for us to be together… I was sad that he doesn’t like me, but now I’m angry; he must, he must like me; otherwise, my life is over.”

45-year-old wife and mother: “I’m still in love with my husband. Sadly for me, he’s in love with the secretary. My sister tells me to leave him because he doesn’t deserve me. I wish things to be that easy. I can’t just pick up things and go. I have responsibilities; my children need their father, and (to be quite honest) I can’t imagine my life without him.”

Those who have never loved someone that didn’t respond whit love, can’t imagine a life together with someone that loves somebody else. However, love and life are not always simple and straightforward. Sometimes, things get complicated, and you might feel you have no choice.

Listen, happiness is a choice. It’s a choice not by waking up in the morning and saying “today I choose to be happy”; it’s a choice buy waking up in the morning and saying to yourself “today I’ll have the behaviors and actions that bring me happiness.”

In full honesty, I don’t know anyone who has never loved someone that didn’t love them back. Do you? We all get through that at a point or another in our life. But the sooner, the better; sooner things are less complicated; sooner, loving someone who doesn’t deserve you is just chemicals in your body; later, those chemicals are followed by negative thoughts and fears (sometimes the scary idea of ending up lonely).

So, the best thing you can do is to put an end to your misery as soon as possible. Yes, it might be hard but not impossible.

However, until the day you can say “I had enough of this; I want sunshine in my life”, check out the following 15 of the best quotes about loving someone who doesn’t love you back so that you understand you’re not alone and how others get through it.

1. I hate it when I can’t stop thinking about that one person and deep down inside I know they probably haven’t thought about me once.

2. The biggest weakness of a person is not being selfish, amorous, wild or egotistical, but stubbornly loving someone who doesn’t love you.

This quote is so true! Yes, love requires you to be selfless, tolerance and understanding… But that is true only when the love you feel is a two-way street – your love is rewarded with being loved. Therefore, when you think you’re not loved, know that you’re alone in that relationship. You are the one, the only one, walking both lanes. Get selfish in the sense that you think of yourself, protecting yourself and start walking a different path.

3. I was so in love with you that I ignored how horribly you treated me.

4. You broke my heart into millions of pieces and still I cannot blame you for feeling this way.

5. If you constantly have to tell someone the same exact thing about how you feel and they don’t change it, understand they don’t respect you.

6. Unrequited love is the hardest of them all, hoping for something that might never just happen.

When we love someone that doesn’t love us back, for a while, we are optimistic and do all sorts of things that don’t make us proud. As time is passing, if you don’t put an end to your misery, you might feel that love is something creepy, something to be avoided because it’s too hard to bear.

Perhaps, you have no control over who you love… If that is true, the other person doesn’t either. And, if you (really) think about it, it’s easier to control who not to love than who you want to love. Is it not?

7. There’s a difference between someone who wants you and someone who would do anything to keep you. Remember that.

8. I will never be good enough for you. I got that.

9. And then karma whispered: “You’ll fall in love with someone who will not love you back, for not loving someone who did”

10. It’s hard to admit that someone doesn’t love you back. So, you hold on to them until you have no choice but to admit it.

11. You stabbed me then pretended you were the one who was bleeding.

12. Don’t feel sad over someone who gave up on you, feel sorry for them because they gave up on someone who would have never given up on them.

13. It’s better to have nobody than to have someone who is half there or doesn’t want to be there.

14. Trying to be friends with someone who you know will never love you back hurts. Being around them makes you simultaneously the happiest and saddest you’ve ever been.

15. No, no you don’t get it. Loving someone that doesn’t love you back is one thing. Loving someone who you think loves you back, then finding out they never did is a completely different thing. It crushes you. You think everything is great, and you’re so happy, then everything is ripped right out from underneath you. It hurts like hell, and you’ll never get it until you experience it.
