It is human nature to think wisely and act foolishly – Anatole France.

I bet many of us have heard our grandparents preach this saying. Even my grandfather taught me to act wisely and never ever make comparisons. Because in this big wide Universe, one thing is never the same as another. Unfortunately, it is a normal human inclination to compare stuff. People from upper class tend to compare their level with other two classes in the hierarchy and vice-versa.
