Expecting the world to treat you fairly…

By Category :

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

From a forward which had other inane quotes like Gandhi said “Love your enemies” and Nehru said “Laziness is our worst enemy” , the above made quite some sense.

On the other day I had a moment of enlightenment when I realized suddenly that complaining “Life is unfair” is quite uncalled for, given that “no one” “promised” it to be otherwise. It was you who set the requirements and/or expectations.

Asking “So what” after every question helps sometimes.

Totally personal cribbing though hoping that it is context-independent.
