Knowing when to remain still

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

A warrior of the light never forgets that good men do not complain.

Injustices take place. We all go through situations we do not deserve – generally when we cannot defend ourselves.

At such times, the warrior remains silent. He does not waste energy on words, for they can do nothing; it is better to use the strength to resist, be patient, and know that Someone is watching. Someone who has faced unjust suffering, and who does not accept it.

This Someone gives the warrior that which he needs the most: time. Sooner or later, everything will work in his favor once again.

A warrior of the light is wise; He doesn’t comment on his defeats.
