Paulo Coelho quotes
When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have ,sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
This is what we call love. When you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there’s no need at all to understand what’s happening, because everything happens within you.
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 will we understand why they were there.
But love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in ,our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.
The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us
The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter
Inreal life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.
None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward.
Anyone who loves in the expectation of being loved in return is wasting their time.
Your eyes show the strength of your soul.
Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.
And, when you want something, all the universe conspiresin helping you to achieve it.
One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve the fear of failure.
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering
When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.
The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.
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.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.
I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did.
You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is
to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
If you haven’t found it yet,keep looking. Don’t settle.
As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like:
“If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.”
It made an impression on me,and since then, for the past 33 years,
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “
If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?”
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me
make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride,
all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death,
leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking
you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Dance Academy quotes
“Every dancer knows that being technically perfect isn’t enough. We need to know why we dance. For me it’s to be connected. I’m inspired by my friends.”
“Its usually fear that stops you from trusting your partner, unless they have dropped you before, then its a learning experience.”
“Its everybody’s dream, No one is going to hand it to you. You have to prove that it is special to you.”
“You think its one moment that grows you up when really its a thousand moments and when it happens, there’s no turning back.”
“The odds were in my favor because I now have more than a best friend, I have a sister, one who I would trust with my life.”
“I think that’s why we do trust exercises because most of the time, the problem isn’t only with the other person. The hardest part of pas de deux is trusting yourself to trust someone else. You need someone there to steady you, to put their faith in you.”
“Last summer when I came home from the academy for the holidays, I discovered that my mom had given away most of my old toys away. She couldn’t understand why I was so traumatised. From her point of view, it wasn’t part of my life anymore. It was time to move on. But when you’re an only child, your toys becomes your friends and I wasn’t ready to move on.”
“Success is 90% hard work and 10% raw talent.”

“I want my future to find me, Not my past.”
“Sometimes you don’t know something is broken until its too late to ever be put back together again. You can paper over the cracks but you know they’re there waiting to find you out.”
“My grandfather used to say, the only reward for a good life is a good life. Its your duty to work hard, right whatever wrongs you had and make it count.”
“You need someone there to steady you, to put their faith in you, so you can be extraordinary.”
“The key to happiness is having something to do, having something to love, and having something to dream about.”
“I don’t know why we have to pretend we don’t care about not winning. We should get to celebrate the victories and be disappointed when you lose something that matters. Because its honest and then you can move on, realising that no win can feel avoided and no loss can hurt you, unless you let it.”
“Sometimes there’s nothing left to say. You only want to be left alone and the only person you want to hear from is silent..”
“I don’t know why I do it, why I mess up what I want the most. I need to learn to be brave, to stand up and say what I want. Even if it is just admitting it to myself. Because that’s the only way I’m ever going to get it.”
“The thing about fear is that you can run from it. You can pretend it doesn’t exist but at some point, it will always find a way to catch up to you. I guess that’s why people go swimming with sharks and jump out of planes, Why they fall in love because the only way to conquer fear, Is to live dangerously – To stare it in the face..”
“Dreams are complicated. I forget they only one third of the happiness puzzle. Sometimes i’m running after my dreams so fast i missed the detours that leave me to places new and unexpected. That doesn’t mean i’m going stop dreaming. Without them I’ll be lost, because there’s nothing more magical then when you catch one and get to hold it in your hands for one perfect moment.”
“Sometimes “Perfect” isn’t what we want and sometimes it can make us selfish and let other people down.”
“Hip Hop, It’s not about steps and It’s not about technique. I don’t want you to be perfect I want you to be real.”
“Wanting to dance isn’t enough to make you dancers. Get your head out of the clouds and start thinking critically. You have to face your physical limitation, not everyone is meant to be a dancer. Prepare yourself for a lifetime of hard-work, sacrifice and more often than not – disappointment.”
“As dancers we learn to be in control of our bodies down to the last millimeter, because if even one finger is out of alignment, it all falls apart, so you practice movements until they’re perfect. You learn to control gravity, to control pain, and refuse to let yourself get away with anything. But there’s one thing that doesn’t follow the rules, that you wish you could control but can’t – your heart.”
“So, apparently there is this basic human reaction to fear. It’s called the fight or flight response. When something scares us our first response is to run, very fast, in the opposite direction. The second response is actually much harder. It’s where you ignore every instinct and instead of running you stay and fight.”
