Many people are born crying, live complaining, and die disappointed; they chew the bitter pill which they would not even know to be bitter if they had the sense to swallow it whole in a cup of patience and water. They think every other man’s burden to be light and their own feathers to be heavy as lead. Yet, if the truth were known, it is their fancy rather than their fate which makes things go so hard with them.
Charles Spurgeon (via zacheway)
