You may earn whatever money you earn as a cricketer, but you want to play for your country. At the end of the day, you want to do something special.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Giotto di Bondone
Musical compositions can be very sad - Chopin - but you have the pleasure of this sadness. The cheap consolation is: you will be happy.

Saint Teresa of Avila
