Paulo Coelho's quotes are things we are well aware of nowadays but what's so special about it is how his words flow exactly how you want to them to be.
Mar 23, L. The illustrations of Anne Kristin Hagesaether are fairy-like compositions which unravel the warm and mild soul of an artist-child.
The intense chromatic mix is most impressive. Some images seem to be unfinished rhapsody, based on the obvious touch line, but this is counter-balanced by painstaking insertions. The effect is a magical world, which has a peculiar dynamism that incorporates the viewer. I seem to be attracted more by the cold pictures.

To find a little book like this which has a selection of quotes from his various works, is just what any fan of his or anyone looking for inspiration, spirituality, perspective and guidance needs. It reminded me and made me feel similar to when I read 'Manual of the Warrior of Light' quotes from which are included in this selection. I simply love Coelho's writing and the feelings and thoughts that he provokes and inspires in my mind.
I have so much still yet to read of his, and I look forward to it very much. Dec 29, Tirza Laluyan rated it it was amazing Shelves: coelho , fave. The front cover explains a lot about the wonderous of this book, and so does the back cover that include a nice quotation from eleven minutes: "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 where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life? I must say thanks to Mita, my deare The front cover explains a lot about the wonderous of this book, and so does the back cover that include a nice quotation from eleven minutes: "Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. I must say thanks to Mita, my dearest friend, who give this book a gift Mar 27, Angel rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Coehlo fans, readers of inspirational works.
Shelves: spiritual-or-inspirational. I saw this in the new book section of the public library, and I decided I had to take check it out. This small volume is a collection of quotes from Coehlo's various writings. The book is organized by themes. It is a quick read, but it is one that invites reflection and thought. I usually read Coehlo in Spanish, so I will try to see if this book is made available in Spanish to buy it for myself.
I think fans will definitely enjoy it. People who have not read his works might this a nice introduct I saw this in the new book section of the public library, and I decided I had to take check it out. People who have not read his works might this a nice introduction. I also think it might make a good present for someone. Definitely recommend it. Oct 22, Ian Galloway rated it really liked it. Not really a book to sit and read in one go Split into 8 inspiring sections that are easy to simply "dip into" it also reminds the user of the literary source; personally I find this makes me want to go and immediately re-read the books.
Mar 28, T. I found this book in my local library and it was the book that led me to other works by Mr. It is a wonderful introduction and led me to keep reminders of his quotations on my office wall. If you're looking for inspiration then this book could be for you.. Aug 26, Jennifer Sokia rated it it was amazing. This book is quotes from many of his books. I love to open it and read one and it starts my brain! Feb 18, m00nbunny rated it really liked it.
That way, time will be an ally, not an enemy. There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them. But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them we will understand why they were there. The warrior of light knows that intuition is God's alphabet and he continues listening to the wind and talking to the stars.
The warrior of light tries to es 1. The warrior of light tries to establish what he can truly rely on. And he always makes sure that he carries three things with him : faith, hope and love. Jul 06, Neeraj rated it it was amazing. Haven't read any of Paulo Coelho's works, and am not sure if I ever will since am not into philosophical fiction, or fiction for that matter.
So, deliberately chose this one to get the crux of his work. Must say, Paulo Coelho is truly the Alchemist of words. You have to re-read every life quote a few times to get to the essence.
Words flow, establishes the hard facts, and gets you thinking. Oct 15, Muhammad Nawawy Arasy Padil rated it really liked it. The warrior of light is not afraid to weep over ancient sorrows or to feel joy at new discoveries. When he feels the moment has arrived, he drops everything and goes off on some long-dreamed-of adventure. Aug 05, Karen rated it really liked it.
The ability to support and confirm through the written word is truly a gift. To read and remember that gift you have been given means it had been done successfully.
I always enjoy receiving these gifts. Aug 10, Ana rated it it was ok Shelves: religion-and-philisophy , friend-loans. I've read the Alchemist and Eleven Minutes a long time ago but I don't remember anything about it.
