Quote from The Pursuit of Happyness, by Christopher Gardner

"There was a man who was drowning, and a boat came, and the man on the boat said 'Do you need help?' and the man said 'No thanks, God will save me'. Then another boat came and he tried to help him, but he said 'No thanks, God will save me', then he drowned and went to Heaven. Then the man told God, 'God, why didn't you save me?' and God said 'I sent you two big boats, you dummy!'"
