Wisdom of the Ages 368

I will always remember when I was a little girl, my father saying “I cried because I had no shoes, then I saw a man who had no feet”. This is open to unlimited interpretations, but I guess it boils down to ‘there is always somebody worse off than you’. So many people are unhappy with their lives, from kids who are jealous of friends who have more toys, to adults who are constantly searching for bigger and better everything, whatever ‘everything’ may be.
