Intuition and the Creation of a Better World

Coelho, Paulo

I am now convinced that it's not the great ideologies that will change the world. Many of them have failed and the birth of new and even more dangerous ones remains a threat, such as the new fundamentalisms. I still feel myself to be a political animal, but the politics contained in my books concern breaking down the walls of cultural conventions that lead to fanaticism. I believe the most important thing,as the Spanish philosopher Fernando Savater affirms, is a strong ethical commitment from each one of us, without which future society will be ever more fratricidal and ever less fraternal.

Paulo Coelho, Confessions of a Pilgrim, p. 69

The boy was beginning to understand that intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life, where the histories of all people are connected, and we are able to know everything, because it's all written there.

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist, p. 76
