Demanding the Best

Today's quote about life and how strange it can be... 

It's funny about life: if you refuse to accept anything but the very best you will very often get it.
W. Somerset Maugham

And that is a very odd thing to say. It never occurred to me to demand the best. Wouldn't that simply be selfish? On the other hand, I did demand the best in a husband, so I guee it works lol!
