Defects and qualities

Author: Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho

A warrior of the light knows his defects. But he also knows his qualities.

Some of his companions complain all the time: “the others have more chances than we have.”

They may be right, but a warrior does not let that paralyze him, and tries to make the most of his virtues.

He knows that the power of the gazelle is the ability of her legs. The power of the seagull lies in her sure aim at striking the fish. He has learned that a tiger is unafraid of the hyena because he is aware of his own strength.

A warrior seeks to know what he can rely on. He always checks his equipment, comprised of three things: faith, hope and love.

If these three are present, he does not hesitate to move forward.
