Dealing with the moment

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

The Latin root of the word “responsibility” reveals its meaning: the capability to respond, to react.

A responsible warrior is capable of observing and training. And he is even capable of being “irresponsible”: at times he allows himself to be lead by the situation, and does not respond, does not react.

But he has learned the lessons; he has taken an attitude, heard advice, been humble enough to accept help.

A responsible warrior is not he who carries on his shoulders the weight of the world; it is he who knows how to deal with the challenges of the moment.
