A Quote by Paulo Coelho on spirituality, religion, mystery, discipline, and worship

Well, let's distinguish religion from spirituality. I am Catholic, so religion for me is a way of having discipline and collective worship with persons who share the same mystery.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on questions, asking, answers, universe, life, unknown, and mystery

I believe everything is one thing only. That said, there are some questions in my life that I don’t know.. I’ve stopped asking. At the very beginning of my life, I wanted to have answers for everything. And now I respect the fact that I can’t have answers for everything.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on opportunity, opinion, warrior, strategy, mistake, action, and uniqueness

The two worst strategic mistakes to make are acting prematurely and letting an opportunity slip; to avoid this, the warrior treats each situation as if it were unique and never resorts to formulae, recipes or other people's opinions.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on religion, light, spirituality, and paths

But in the end all religions tend to point to the same light. In between the light and us, sometimes there are too many rules. The light is here and there are no rules to follow this light.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on omens, language, sign, fate, god, spirituality, and mistakes

Omens are a language, it’s the alphabet we develop to speak to the world’s soul, or the universe’s, or God’s, whatever name you want to give it.  Like an alphabet, it is individual, you only learn it by making mistakes, and that keeps you from globalizing the spiritual quest.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on madness, habits, sanity, working, and insanity

I think the big danger of madness is not madness itself, but the habit of madness.  What I discovered during the time I spent in the asylum is that I could choose madness and spend my whole life without working, doing nothing, pretending to be mad.  It was a very strong temptation..
