Petrus: Petrus was Paulo Coelho's guide in his pilgrimage to Santiago, who left his busy career in the real world to be his guide along the way. He taught him exercises to help the pilgrim achieve his goals.
“In recent times,some thought that God is merely a concept, subject to a scientific proof. But, at this point, history has been reversed, or rather is starting all over again.”
“The busiest people i have known in my life always have time enough to do everything. Those who do nothing are always tired and pay no attention to the little amount of work they are required to do. They complain instantly that the day is too short. The truth is, they are afraid to fight the good fight.”
“We are suffering because of someone who doesn't love us, or someone who has left us, or someone who won't leave us. If we are alone, it is because no one wants us; if we are married, we transform the marriage into slavery.”
“A threat leads to nothing if it's not accepted. In fighting the good fight, you should never forget that. Just as you should never forget that both attacking and fleeing are part of the fight. What isn't a part of a fight is becoming paralyzed by fear.”
