„One can not choose the time when to be born and when to live. It does not depend on him from which parents, neither in which nation will he be born, but it does depend on him how will he act in a given time: whether as a man or as inhuman, regardless of his nation and regardless of his parents.“~Blessed Patriarch Pavle of Serbia..(I love this)
