Paulo Coelho Quote

Intense, unexpected suffering passes more quickly than suffering that is apparently bearable; the latter goes on for years and, without our noticing, eats away at our souls, until, one day, we are no longer able to free ourselves from the bitterness and it stays with us for the rest of our lives.


The Alchemist - 10th Anniversary Edition (ed. HarperSanFrancisco, 1998)
