    When you wish for something you also have to deal with the aftermath, effects, and consequences. If you were to wish for the rain you would be happy that your wish was granted but by the time the rain passes you will have to deal with the effects and consequences of the rain (which would be the mud). I think this quote shows that by wanting something you shall also have to deal with the consequences and effects of it. Although it may seem like the best thing in the world it also has it's consequences that cannot go ignored. Everything comes with a consequence/effect and you should keep this in mind before wishing/getting something.

    You can pray for something good but something bad has to come with it.
