Funny Self Pity Quotes

Change is the law of life, she said quietly. On the other hand, I protested, some things dont change fast enough! Like what? Mother asked. Like fat, funny-looking me! Mother snorted. Youre extremely good-looking. All my children are. I expected her to add, I wouldnt have it any other way, but she said, instead, If you think youre too heavy, lose some weight. Easier said than done, I muttered. If theres one thing I cant bear, Mother scolded, its self-pity, particularly from one who has no reason to pity herself. Are you crippled? Are you stupid? Are you hungry, or ill-clothed? If you were then youd have something to gripe about. Youre fatherless, its true, but then Im husbandless. Somehow, we manage.

Change is the law of life,' she said quietly.
'On the other hand,' I protested, 'some things don't change fast enough!'
'Like what?' Mother asked.
'Like fat, funny-looking me!'
Mother snorted. 'You're extremely good-looking. All my children are.' I expected her to add, 'I wouldn't have it any other way,' but she said, instead, 'If you think you're too heavy, lose some weight.'
'Easier said than done,' I muttered.
'If there's one thing I can't bear,' Mother scolded, 'it's self-pity, particularly from one who has no reason to pity herself. Are you crippled? Are you stupid? Are you hungry, or ill-clothed? If you were then you'd have something to gripe about. You're fatherless, it's true, but then I'm husbandless. Somehow, we manage.
