    Crying ?

    Pain and trials are only submitted to us in order to watch how our patience could be tested. If at first proof we begin to cry, no need to explain how the proof is lost. Better to have a bit set-back, a bit meditation and see the proof just as a schoolwork ! Best way to win in...

    If it were to come instantly,
