Latin America's Rumi, Paulo Coelho

I'm a huge fan of Paulo Coelho and had the fortune of reading most of his works, particularly his universally acclaimed masterpiece, The Alchemist. Is he Latin America's Rumi?

"Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist is an enchanting fable about the spiritual journey we all must take if we are to fulfill our dreams and play out our destiny. Along the way we need to learn how to trust our hearts, to read the world for signs of God, to listen to our dreams, to make the most of coincidence and luck, and to accept the subtle ways love "transforms and improves the Soul of the World."

"پائولو کوئلیو که کتاب هایش از پر فروش ترین کتاب های بیست سال گذشته در تمام جهان بوده است، از پدیده های پایان قرن بیستم به شمار می‌رود-پائولو کوئلیو، یکی از پرخواننده ‌ترین ‌، و تاثیرگذارترین ‌نویسندگان امروز است‌..
برخی‌ او را کیمیاگر واژه‌ها می‌دانند و برخی‌ دیگر، پدیده‌ای‌ عامه‌پسند. اما درهر حال‌، کوئلیو یکی‌ از تاثیرگذارترین‌ نویسندگان‌ قرن‌ حاضر است‌. خوانندگان‌ بی‌شمار او از 150 کشور، فارغ‌ ازفرهنگ‌ و اعتقادات‌ خود، اورا نویسنده‌ی‌ مرجع‌ دوران‌ ما کرده‌اند. کتاب‌های‌ اوبه‌ 56 زبان‌ ترجمه‌ شده‌اند و جدای‌ ازآن‌ که‌ همواره‌ در فهرست‌ کتاب‌های‌ پرفروش‌ بوده‌اند، درتمام‌ ط‌ول‌ دوران‌ ظ‌هور او، مورد بحث‌ و جدل‌ اجتماعی‌ و فرهنگی‌ قرار داشته‌اند.
افکار، فلسفه‌ و موضوعات‌ مط‌رح‌ شده‌ درآثار او، بر ذهن‌ میلیون‌ها خواننده‌ای‌ تاثیر گذاشته‌ است‌ که‌ به‌ دنبال‌ یافتن‌
"راه‌ خویش‌، و روش‌های‌ تازه‌ برای‌ درک‌ جهان‌ هستند

Spiritual Quotes by Paulo Coelho

.....و هر انساني آنچه را دوست مي دارد نابود مي كند به وسيله هر آنچه به تصور آيد, برخي با كلامي تلخ و طعنه آميز و برخي با كلامي تملق آميز ...مرد مجنون با بوسه اي و مرد شجاع با 

هميشه وسيع باش و تنها ...سربه زير و سر سخت ...دوستانت بر سه گروهند : دوست تو ،
دوست دوست تو ، دشمن دشمن تو !
فقط تجربه گرماي عشقي كه ما را احاطه كرده است در چنين لحظاتي ممكن است اشك هاي نا خواسته اي به گونه هاي ما در غلتند, اشك هايي كه نه از غم حكايت مي كند و نه از شادي . شگفتزده نشو .اشك موهبتي است كه روح ما را پاكيزه مي كند.
این رفتار عشق است که با آرامش صبر کند بیشتاب و بداند که در لحظه مشخصی خواهد توانست خود تجلی دهد .آماده است تا در آن زمان مشخص وظیفه خود را انجام دهد . اما تا آن زمان با بردباری و آرامش صبر میکندعشق بردبار است همه چیز راتحمل میکند, همه چیز را باور دارد . منتظر همه چیز است . چون عشق میتواند بفهمد...

"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream."
"The wise are wise only because they love. The fool are fools only because they think they can understand love."     
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Listen to your heart. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World, and it will one day return there. Wherever your heart is, that is where you'll find your treasure. Your heart is alive. Keep listening to what it has to say."
"Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed, to be a threatening place."
"People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them."
"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure."
"When a person really desires something all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream."
"One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving."
"Every blessing ignored becomes a curse"
"Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere."
"Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks."
"You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen."
"No one can lie, no one can hide anything, when he looks directly into someone's eyes."
"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering."
"We're always seeking out the treasure of our destiny, without actually first wanting to live out our destiny."
"When we love, we always strive to become better than we are."
