Today I completed reading second book from Paulo Coelho. Here is my take from the book.

Manuscript found in Accra by Paulo Coelho

In the cycle of nature, there is no such thing as victory or defeat. There is only movement.

Their previous defeat means that toys time they must win, because they don't want to suffer the same pain again.

Only he who gives up is defeated, everyone eke is victorious.

1. Wait patiently for the right moment to act. 
2. Do not let the next opportunity slip by you. 
3. Take pride in your scars.

Scars speak more loudly than the sword that caused them.

Defeat ends when we launch into another battle. Failure has no end: it is a lifetime choice.

Solitude is not the absence of love, but its complement.

Don't tru to be useful. Try to be yourself: that is enough, and that makes all the difference.

Beauty exists not in sameness but in difference. 

Love says, "You think you're heading towards a specific point, but the whole justification for the goal's existence lies in your love for it. Rest a little, but as soon as you can, get up and carry on. Because ever since your goal found out that you're travelling towards it, it has been running to meet you."

Life is too short for us to keep important words, for example, ,"I love you", locked in our hearts. 

Our great goal in life is to love. The rest is silence.

None can go back but everyone can go forward. 

Let's forget all that we're taught about how it is noble to give and humiliating to receive. For most people, generosity consists only in giving,and yet receiving is also an act of love. Allowing someone else to make us happy will make them happy to.

Everything is fine as it is, but we still need to move on.

Elegance is not a outer quality but a part of the soul that is visible to others.

Arrogance complicates words because it believes that intelligence is only for the few.  Elegance transforms complex thoughts into something everyone can understand.

What is success? It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.

4 cardinal virtues
1 Boldness
2 Elegance
3 Love
4 Friendship

Miracles do not go against the laws of nature, we only think so because we do not understand the laws of nature. 

4 invisible forces
1 Love
2 Death
3 Power
4 Time

Only someone capable of honouring each step he takes can comprehend his own worth. 

The greatest gift God gave us is the power to make decisions.

When a wise man covets something that belongs to another man, he loads him with gifts. The other man will have so many useless objects to take care of that he will lose everything else, because he is to busy trying to keep what he thinks he owns.

The most destructive weapon is not the spear or the siege Canon, which can wound a body or demolish a wall. The most terrible of all weapons is the word, which can ruin a life without leaving a trace of blood, and whose wounds never heal.

When the fight is over, both sides well emerge as winners, because they tested their limitations and their abilities.

Your enemies are not the adversaries who were put there to treat your courage. They're the cowards who were put there to test your weakness.

Go in peace.
