Isis Anthem

Because I am the first and last,

I am the venerated and the despised,

I am the prostitute and the saint

I am the wife and the virgin

I am the mother and daughter

I am my mother's arms,

I am the barren and many are my children

While I am married and unmarried,

I am the one who gives birth and never bore,

I am the consolation for the pain of childbirth,

I am the wife and husband

and was my man who created me,

I am the mother of my father

I am the sister of my husband,

and he is my rejected son.

Respect ME always

I am the outrageous and wonderful.


Promise me,
promise me this day,
promise me now,
while the sun is overhead
exactly at the zenith,
promise me:

Even as they
strike you down
with a mountain of hatred and violence;
even as they step on you and crush you
like a worm,
even as they dismember and disembowel you,
remember, brother,
man is not our enemy.

Hay Amores

Hay amores…………que matan cuando otros dan vida eterna.

Hay amores que abaten mientras otros llenan el alma entera.

Hay amores que queman pero de gusto y placer.

Los hay imposibles, robados o libres de ser.

Están los que ahogan entre las lágrimas de una dicha sin límite.

Hay amores de dos, otros de tres.

Esta el amor incondicional, el que no mide esperas, que se da por completo sin medir el peligro ni los riesgos que el amar envuelva.

Y están esos amores que nunca tienen un final feliz porque sencillamente nunca tienen final.

En esa categoría estamos tú y yo.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story by Paulo Coehlo. Real life down to earth characters struggling to find the meaning of life; a mirror of what we all go through day by day. The amazing story of Linda makes us ponder and question. What's life's ultimate purpose? What force moves us? What is it that we should all strive for?
