“Every search begins with beginners luck and ends with the victor’s being severely tested.”

“The Boy didn’t know what a person’s ‘destiny’ was…
It’s what you have always wanted to accomplish.
Everyone, when they are young knows what their destiny is.”

“Treasure is uncovered by the force of the flowing water,
and it is buried by the same currents”

“When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize
 the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.”

“Don’t forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else.
And don’t forget the language of omens.
And, above all, don’t forget to follow your destiny through to its conclusion.”

“When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current
that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision. “

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

“Courage is the quality most essential to understanding the Language of the World. “

“When we strive to become better than we are,
everything around us becomes better too.”

“I don’t live in either my past or my future.
I’m interested only in the present.
If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man.
Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment
we’re living now.”

“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.”



~The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

My favorite topic  ;D


Here are a few for those "harsh" times of life.

 
"Pain is your friend; it is your ally. Pain reminds you to finish the job and get the hell home. Pain tells you when you have been seriously wounded. And you know what the best thing about pain is? It tells you you're not dead yet!"

”If you know someone who tries to drown their sorrows, you might tell them sorrows know how to swim” -Jackson Brown, Jr.

”Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?" --Mary Manin Morrissey

“In life you are going to make mistakes, you're going to fall down, but it's the getting up that counts. Just like in baseball: you'll get a few hits, but most likely, you'll strike out more than you'll get on base. But don't quit. Find your focus, relax, take a deep breath and give it a good swing" Dave Pelzer - A Man Called Dave

"The best way to escape from a problem is to solve it."

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey” --Miyazawa Kenji
