Since I grew tired of the chase
And search, I learned to find;
And since the wind blows in my face,
I sail with every wind.

Don't demand that things happen as you wish, but wish that they happen as they do happen, and you will go on well.

Fate shuffles the cards and we play.

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.


Paulo Coelho also said...

Courage in the path is what makes the path manifest itself.

And, when you can't go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.

The dunes change with the wind, but the desert remains the same.

When I had all the answers, the questions changed.

Each day, in itself, brings with it an eternity.

People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.
