Sometimes your disappointments make you a stronger person for the future.

The goal of pursuit of justice must not simply be that justice happens but that reconciliation also happens.

If evangelism isn't an expression of love of neighbor, it isn't Christian evangelizing. And love of neighbor includes not only what I say to the neighbor but how I say that.

Although we didn't have much when I was growing up in Split, Croatia, my parents always tried to ensure that my sister and I had the things we needed, and it was enough for us.

The trouble with me is that every match I play against five opponents: umpire, crowd, ball boys, court, and myself.

Theology is not only about understanding the world; it is about mending the world.

To triumph fully, evil needs two victories, not one.

The first victory happens when an evil deed is perpetrated; the second victory, when evil is returned. After the first victory, evil would die if the second victory did not infuse it with new life.

If you take the 'love your enemy' out of Christianity, you've 'unChristianed' the Christian faith.

Christ came to transform us from never enough people - to more than enough people; that through his poverty we may become rich.

The difference between justice and forgiveness: To be just is to condemn the fault and, because of the fault, to condemn the doer as well. To forgive is to condemn the fault but to spare the doer. That's what the forgiving God does.

When you love there is no 'I', so you cannot say 'I love you', only love is.

One score makes happy ONE player, one assist makes happy TWO.

If Yugoslavia is to exist, it can exist only as an alliance, a confederation of independent states.

If I can't serve on grass, I can maybe help cut the grass, paint the lines and serve some strawberries.

Christians believe that there will be a Judgment Day at the end.

And it is my belief that on that day justice will be done and there will be a reconciliation between those who have profoundly injured one another takes place.

I don't care now if I ever win a match in my life again.

Whatever I do in my life, wherever I go, I'm going to be always Wimbledon champion.

God is the utterly loving giver. God doesn't just love. God is love.

We lead our lives well when we love God with our whole being and when we love neighbors as we (properly) love ourselves.

In a way, fraud in business is no different from infidelity in marriage or plagiarism in scholarly work. Even people committed to high moral standards succumb.

Naked need is the occasion for God's giving, not a need adorned with the clean, elegant robes of respectability and good works.

If we can exit a relationship, pressure to reconcile lessens;

if we must live with those who have wronged us, we are pushed to reconcile.

The estimated loss of up to six million dead is founded too much on both emotional, biased testimonies and on exaggerated data in the postwar reckonings of war crimes and on the squaring of accounts with the defeated.

In good relationships, we are happy to grow as the other person becomes part of us and who we are.

I have so many runner-up cups that I am thinking of starting my own tea shop.

I do believe that Muslims and Christians and Jews pray to the same God.

And yet they understand who God is in significantly different ways.

Absolute hospitality would in no way amount to the absence of violence.

To the contrary, it would enthrone violence precisely under the guise of nonviolence because it would leave the violators unchanged and the consequences of violence unremedied.

We created a new democratic Croatia, .

.. The HDZ is the strongest party in Croatia, and it achieved this not because of us politicians but because of you, the people of Croatia.

People don't come to stadiums only to see results.

They come to see a reaction, they want to see we are also human, that we can cry or laugh.

You can't slow the game here. It's grass, it's always going to be fast.

If I say, 'I forgive you,' I have implicitly said you have done something wrong to me. But what forgiveness is at its heart is both saying that justice has been violated and not letting that violation count against the offender.

Actually, I tossed it nicely, landed nicely, like airplane.

No warning, beautiful. That's the art of throwing racquets.

Ivan Lendl's never going to be a great player on grass.

The only time he comes to the net is to shake your hand.

My fines? I pay more fines than some guys' career prize money on the tour.

When I won Wimbledon, I said to God: just let me win this one tournament and I won't play another match. Maybe God's telling me to go home, but I don't want to go home. We are negotiating at the moment.

The significance of the crucifixion is not only what God does for us;

consistently throughout the New Testament the crucifixion is portrayed as the pattern that we are to follow. It is a model of social behavior toward the other as well as a statement about what God has done for us.

With me, you never know what is going to happen

I think I owe it to myself and my fans in Britain to play one more Wimbledon.

We, as citizens or members of people's organisations.

..can preserve and nourish basic principles needed for long-term efforts aimed at transforming a totalitarian and war-torn society into a democratic one.

Easy was, like, spending time with Jennifer on set.

Difficult stuff about character is, it was a little bit like just being the only one with no superhuman powers.

Prejudice is a form of untruthfulness, and untruthfulness is an insidious form of injustice.

To have a son in wartime is the worst curse that can befall a mother, no matter what anyone says.

For Christian faith not to be idle in the world, the work of doctors and garbage collectors, business executives and artists, stay-at-home moms or dads and scientists needs to be inserted into Gods story with the world. That story needs to provide the most basic rules by which the game in all these spheres is played.

At her birthday, my seven-year-old daughter will say that she wants these big cakes and certain expensive toys as presents, and I can't say no to her. It would just break my heart. But when I was little, for birthdays we just played outside and we were happy if we got any cake.

All I ever wanted to do was act.

I like so much wearing heels, legs look so much better, everything looks better. But it's only recently I've had the courage to do that.

Since retiring I have spent a lot of time with my family, on my boat, and playing football.

I must be the only player in the world who ever injured himself for a tournament by stepping on a shell on the beach. I don't know what I'm going to do.

Thank god my wife is neither a Serb nor a Jew.

Winning Wimbledon was a great feeling and it is still a great feeling.

It has given me so much confidence.

I am the only girl in the family so everyone pampered me.
