Philosophy in life: “Let us not be bothered by what others can do, because if they can do things, then we could improve on things; and be better.  Experiences always go hand-in hand with a lesson.”

“Never think about WHAT WILL HAPPEN, but start thinking about WHAT YOU CAN DO. I once was a child who could do nothing, but pray. But then these prayers made me where I am now. The best is yet to come.”
