Lot Comparison

“Everyone’s lot in this world has some crook in it.  Complainers are apt to make odious comparisons:  they look about, and, taking a distant view of the condition of others, can discern nothing in it but what is straight, and just to one’s wish; and so they pronounce their neighbor’s lot wholly straight.  But that is a false verdict; there is no perfection here, no lot out of heaven without a crook…Everyone feels for himself, where he is pinched, though others perceive it not.  Nobody’s lot in this world is wholly crooked; there are always some straight and even parts in it.”

-Thomas Boston, The Crook in the Lot, P.4-5
