And Above All Else, Courage

Lyricist Novelist Paulo Coelho had a pleasant surprise for me this morning. As I opened my mail, I found his response to my blog. Unbelievable. But this powerful man on earth is known for such surprising acts. This is what I received from him:

And above all else, courage


To manage to face this new moment and allow room for new ideas and for energy to be renewed, it is necessary to have courage. Courage to face prejudices. Courage to be fair. Courage to understand that everything we do affects the history of the world. Courage to take steps in the direction of the unknown, even knowing that from time to time we are going to make mistakes.

God has done his part by creating us and putting us in the world.  Now He looks down on us with love and asks us to do our part.

Thank you O great writer!

Thank you so much for the kind words. Thank you also for inspiring and encouraging me, ad infinitum. SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


  1. This is amazing! I wish I could have an answer of Paulo too. He is wise and he shares his wisdom with people. I always feel that his ‘messages’ in his books or blog, arrives to me in the right time… and now, I read your post and reading his letter to you I felt that again. I was needing to listen that.

    May God bless Paulo forever!

    Wishing you peace, and congrats for your blog and paulo’s answer :):)
