Essence of Life

Inspiring story.. A Beautiful Message🌿

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!

He received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:

"Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease??"

To this Arthur Ashe replied:

50 Million children started playing Tennis,

5 Million learnt to play Tennis,

500 000 learnt Professional Tennis,

50 Thousand came to Circuit,

5 Thousand reached Grandslam,

50 reached Wimbledon,

4 reached the Semifinals,

2 reached the Finals and

when I was holding the cup in my hand,

I never asked God

"Why Me?"

So now that I'm in pain how can I ask God "Why Me?"

Happiness keeps you Sweet!!

Trials keeps you Strong!!

Sorrows keeps you Human!!

Failure keeps you Humble!!

Success keeps you Glowing!!

But only,

Faith keeps you Going.

Sometimes you are

unsatisfied with your life,

while many people in

this world are dreaming

of living your life..

A child on a farm sees

a plane fly overhead &

dreams of flying.


A pilot on the plane sees

the farmhouse & dreams

of returning home.

That's life!!

Enjoy yours...

If wealth is the secret to


then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

But only poor kids

do that.

If power ensures security,

then VIPs should walk


But those who live simply, sleep soundly.

If beauty and fame bring

ideal relationships,

then celebrities should have the best marriages.

Live simply.

Walk humbly.

and love genuinely...! Have a great weekend.
