I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them;
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back;
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
I've learned that you can get by on charm, for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better know something...
Latest posted quotesby Paulo Coelho
from the book "The Alchemist"
'It's odd,' says the warrior of light to himself. 'I have met so many people who, at the first opportunity, try to show their very worst qualities. They hide their inner strength behind aggression; they hide their fear of loneliness behind an air of independence. They do not believe in their own abilities, but are constantly trumpeting their virtues.'
Get together with those who sing, tell stories, enjoy life and have joy in their eyes. Because joy is contagious, and always manages to impeed men from being paralized by depression, by solitude and by difficulties.
Unite to those who procede with their head held high, even if the eyes are full of tears.
