Paulo Coelho /Catrin Welz-Stein ~ Quotes /Aforismi

Paulo Coelho de Souza, 1947 - Brazilian lyricist and novelist

    Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.
  • I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.
  • Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
