"If God do touch thee with hurt, there is none that can remove it but He: if He do design some benefit for thee, there is none that can keep back His favour: He causeth it to reach whomsoever of His servants He pleaseth. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
Quran (010:107) (via blackaurora)
"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever."
Lance Armstrong (via nai1aa)
