:: thoughts to mull over ::

I picked up a book today by Paulo Coelho which i will buy. Soon la. Books are so expensive nowadays ya?

*sigh*

*****************************************************

“I think that when we look for love courageously, it reveals itself, and we wind up attracting even more love. If one person really wants us, everyone does. But if we’re alone, we become even more alone. Life is strange.”

“You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.”

“But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think that yours is the only path.”

And my favourite…

“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.”
