It’s unfair

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 01.43.07We spoilt brats would moan, ‘It’s unfair!’ The rejoinder of our schoolteachers — and possibly even of our parents, if we had good ones — was: ‘Life is unfair.’

Dalrymple points out that unfairness is

built into the nature of existence itself and is something that we have to learn to accept if we are to have tolerable sublunary lives. I’m not sure I’ve learned to do it myself.
