there but for the grace of God go I

I also could be in that terrible situation, as in Seeing him with two flat tires on the highway, she said “There but for the grace of God go I.” This expression has been attributed to John Bradford, who so remarked on seeing criminals being led to their execution (c. 1553) and who in fact was executed himself as a heretic a few years later. A number of religious leaders, including John Bunyan, have been credited with it as well.
