Roads are marked and planned.
Life is like the ocean, unlined.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions while the path to heaven is hewed with great sufferings. Life’s fabric is woven not only out of joys and happiness but also with tears and sorrow. Suffering is part of our human lot, an essential ingredient of our existence – sometimes because of our own doing , other times because of our imperfection and still at other times because of people around us, even those whom we love. But it is suffering that makes me more human, makes my joys sweeter and my happiness deeper. It makes me a stronger, wiser, a better and a humbler person.
