Is there a better quote..???

During his battle with AIDS, from the world over, Arthur Ashe received letters from his

fans, one of which asked: "Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease"?


To this Arthur 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 semi-finals, 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?"
