Life

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 -- 5 crore children start playing tennis,
50 lakh learn to play tennis, 5 lakh learn professional
tennis, 50,000 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 u Sweet, Trials keep u Strong,
Sorrow keeps u Human,Failure Keeps u Humble,
Success keeps u Glowing,
But only God Keeps u Going.....

It reminds me the Bible verse from JOB, where Job says the same meaningful words:))
