" Life is like a box of chocholates ... "

"The winds of grace are always blowing, but we must raise our sails."                   Ramakrishna

“I asked for strength
and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for wisdom
And God gave me problems to learn to solve.

I asked for prosperity
And God gave me a brain and brawn to work.

I asked for courage
And God gave me dangers to overcome.

I asked for love
And God gave me people to help.

I asked for favours
And God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed."                 Sufi poem, attributed to Hazrat Inayar Khan
