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.
During his battle with AIDS, one of his fans asked,
"Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?"
Ashe replied,
"The world over — 50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5,000 reach the Grand Slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to the semifinals, 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 and 
success keeps u glowing.
