Warrior of the Light – Paulo Coelho

  • That is why they are Warriors of the Light. Because they make mistakes, because they ask themselves questions, because they are looking for a reason they are sure to find it.
  • If he waits for the ideal moment, he will never set off. The Warrior requires a touch of madness to take the next step
    The Warrior uses that touch of madness. For — in both love and war — it is impossible to force everything.
  • Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
    Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
    Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.
    Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.
    Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed that he was not a Warrior of the Light
    Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
    Every Warrior of the Light has said “yes” when he wanted to say “no.
    Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved.
    That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.
  • Routine was never the leader of any important new movement.
  • A Warrior of Light who trusts too much in his intelligence will end up underestimating the power of his opponent.
    It is important not to forget that sometimes strength is more effective than strategy.
  • The Warrior of the Light knows when the enemy is stronger.
    If he decides to confront him, he will be destroyed instantly. If he responds to his provocations, he will fall into a trap. So he uses diplomacy to resolve the difficult situation in which he finds himself. When the enemy behaves childishly, he does the same. The he challenges him to a fight, he pretends not to understand.
    The Warrior knows that all the rage and courage of a little bird are as nothing to a cat.
  • A responsible Warrior is not someone who takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, but someone who has learned how to deal with the challenges of the moment.
  • His angel whispers: “You are only an instrument of the Light. There is no reason to feel proud or to feel guilty. There are only reasons to feel happy.”
    And the Warrior of the Light, aware now that he is but an instrument, feels calmer and more secure.
  • Warriors of the Light never accept what is unacceptable.
