I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man. You'll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesmen fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now. - Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist Quotes)

I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. You’ll see that there is life in the desert, that there are stars in the heavens, and that tribesmen fight because they are part of the human race. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living right now.[Porque não vivo nem no meu passado, nem no meu futuro. Tenho apenas o presente, e ele é o que me interessa. Se você puder permanecer sempre no presente, então será um homem feliz. Vai perceber que no deserto existe vida, que o céu tem estrelas, e que os guerreiros lutam porque isto faz parte da raça humana. A vida será uma festa, um grande festival, porque ela é sempre e apenas o momento que estamos vivendo.]
