„Translation:In a letter, all we own is the address on the envelope. The contents are a matter of fate.“

—  P. L. Deshpande Marathi writer, humourist, actor, dramatist 1919 - 2000

Alternate translation: Ultimately, it may be our name on the envelope, but someone else (God) is the one who wrote the message.
