'The disciple is not above his master; but everyone that is perfect shall be as his master.' -- Luke 6:40

'The Warrior of Light knows that everything around him his victories, his defeats, his enthusiasm and his despondency form part of his Good Fight. And he will know which strategy to use when he needs it. A Warrior does not try to be coherent; he has learned to live with his contradictions.' -- Paulo Coelho

'A Warrior of Light knows that he has much to be grateful for.' -- Paulo Coelho

'I believe men can be divided into those who look for spiritual peace and warriors of light, who, as Saint Paul said, love constant struggle without resting in their laurels. -- Paulo Coelho

We are all capable of being a Warrior of Light, as we are all capable of walking the Road to Santiago.

In conversation with Juan Arias, Paulo Coelho talked of the importance of fighting the good fight. Failing is not the same as being defeated. Failing is to do nothing. We may be defeated, but if we have fought a good fight we at least know we tried, and if we are defeated, we can learn the lessons of our defeat. [see Paulo Coelho by Juan Arias]

'I try to make it clear, through my own experience, that failing is not the same as being defeated. They fail who don't even try to fight their battle and they are defeated those who try to struggle. And this defeat is no shame. ... And, as Jose Saramago said so well in your book, Possible Love, there's no such thing as a definite defeat or definite victory, because today's defeat could become tomorrow's victory.'

Manual of the Warrior of Light is a handbook to to help the Warrior of Light to fight the good fight, and if defeated to understand the defeat and to learn from the experience.

Manual of the Warrior of Light by Paulo Coelho is just that, a manual. It is not intended to be read as a novel from cover to cover. Read a thought at a time, or open at a random page.

Manual of the Warrior of Light makes a useful companion to The Pilgrimage. It equally makes a useful companion to accompany us through life.
