In this world, there are only two kinds of people who can be happy and successful.
One, who believe that God is almighty...then whatever good - bad, sin - virtue,
all is happening as per his will; the matter ends. Second, who believe that God
doesn't exist at all and take up all their responsibilities by themselves, again the
matter ends. But since all of us are stuck hanging between the two, we end up
being sad and unsuccessful.
- Deep Trivedi
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
- Saint Augustine of Hippo
