"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
