Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS. 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:
In the world,
over 50 million children start playing tennis,
over 5 million learn to play tennis,
over 500000 learn professional tennis,
over 50000 come to the circuit,
over 5000 reach the grand slam,
over 50 reach Wimbeldon,
over 4 to the semi-finals,
and over 2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup, I never asked GOD “Why me?”.
And today, when I am in pain, I should not be asking GOD “Why me?”
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human ,
Failure Keeps you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But only God Keeps you Going.
