Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Author: Paulo Coelho

You said in the past that you can learn love in all its forms from women, and discipline from men. Which were the stages of love in your life as related to the women you have loved? And what about men who have marked your existence?
This is a very long answer, and I don’t want to simplify, so probably I will resume by saying that we need to understand that love justifies life, and that we have to fight with enthusiasm and discipline for people and things that are important to us, otherwise life will be like a Sunday afternoon, plenty of time, but the most boring day in the week.
