Paulo Coelho -Favorite Quotes (7 books items)

"“In adolescence she thought it was too early to choose, now in youth she was convinced it was too late to change.” “An awareness of death encourages to live more intensely.” “Stay insane, but behave like normal people.

"Adapted to: Veronika Decides To Die (2009) Sarah Michelle Gellar as Veronika Personal note: Sarah Michelle Gellar has nothing in common with my Veronika, but I look foward to seeing how she will impersonate one of my favorite characters.. Too bad the film is not yet released. Personal note part 2: Okay, so I've finally watched it. All I could think afterward was WTF?? Seriously, I think they couldn't have done a worse job on it even if they tried. "

"Original Title: Veronika Decide Morrer Year Published: 1998 Summary: It tells the story of 24 year old Veronika, who appears to have everything in life going for her, but who decides to kill herself. This book is partly based on Coelho's experience in various mental institutions. It is based around the subject of madness. The gist of the message is that "collective madness is called sanity"."

""Louco é quem vive em seu mundo. Como os esquizofrênicos, os psicopatas, os maníacos.. Entretanto, você já deve ter ouvido falar em Einstein, dizendo que não havia tempo nem espaço, mas uma união dos dois. Ou Colombo, insistindo que do outro lado do mar não estava um abismo, e sim um continente. Ou de Edmond Hillary, garantindo que um homem podia chegar ao topo do Everest. Ou dos Beatles, que fizeram uma música diferente e se vestiram como pessoas totalmente fora de sua época. Todas e"
