Whatever has happened, has happened for good.

Whatever is happening, is happening for good.

Whatever will happen, shall also happen for good.

What have you lost, that you cry for?

What did you bring, that you lost?

What did you create, that was destroyed?

You came empty handed, and will go empty handed.

Whatever is yours today, was somebody else’s yesterday, and will be somebody else’s tomorrow.
