Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983.
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
"Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"?
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
The world over -- 50 million children start playing tennis,
5 million learn to play tennis, 500000 learn professional tennis,
50000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final,
2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD, 'Why me?'.
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD, 'Why me?'
Happiness keeps you sweet….
Trials keeps you strong….
Sorrow keeps you human….
Failure keeps you humble….
Success keeps you glowing….
Only Faith & Attitude keeps you going....
Always keep people in your life that charge your battery, not those who will drain it.
Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur
