      The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

        Anyone that properous has gotten there on the shoulders of others.  (Even most people who have much less than you do, for that matter...)

        Lucky that you have your health, that you don't have an Alzheimer's parent or an autistic kid to care for, that you haven't got cancer.  That no one drove their care through your house, that you didn't lose everything in a hurricane or fire or earthquake.  And on and on.

        Lucky that you weren't born in Darfur or Sarajevo or Baghdad or wherever.  Plenty of smart people work hard and don't get that level of "success".
