Quote of the Day

From American Digest:
*Everyone* is unfairly rewarded, and punished, by the accidents of their births, and of their lives. The world is not fair. That's just the way it is. Trying to make the world less unfair can only be accomplished by making it unfair in some other way.


Forget the world.

Just do what you need to do to give yourself the tools to overcome the particular unfairnesses that the world will throw at YOU.


  1. When people speak of fairness/unfairness, I'm always fond of a quote from Calvin and Hobbes:

    "Calvin's dad: 'Life is not fair, Calvin.'
    Calvin: 'I know, but why can't it ever be unfair in my favor?'"

  2. I am satisfied with trying to make the unfairness nor hurt so much.

  3. I haven't always had it easy, but in the grand scheme of things life has been grossly unfair in my favor.

    I try to remember that even when it doesn't feel like it.
