Excerpts from 'Eleven Minutes'

I can choose to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It’s all a question of how I view my life.

_______

All my life, I thought of love as some kind of voluntary enslavement. Well, that’s a lie: freedom only exists when love is present. The person who gives him or herself wholly, the person who feels freest, is the person who loves most wholeheartedly.

And the person who loves wholeheartedly feels free.

….in love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel.

- Eleven Minutes, Paulo Coelho
