“If there is a God, He will have to beg my forgiveness.”
A phrase that was carved on the walls of a concentration camp cell during WWII by a Jewish prisoner.

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player, was dying of AIDS that he got from infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
From the world over, he received letters from his fans, one of whom conveyed: “Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?”.
To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over–50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach the Wimbledon, 4 to semi finals, 2 to finals. When I was the one holding the cup, I never asked god “Why me?”.
And today in pain, I should not be asking GOD, “why me?”.
Worrying is like riding a tiger. If you can stay on top of it, you will enjoy the ride. If you get off, the tiger will eat you.

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon.
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
