I (a woman) frequently find myself wanting to reply to a statement with the phrase "You're a better man than I."
If I say this to a man though, it sounds absurd, and to a woman, potentially insulting. Is there a genderless equivalent for this phrase? The obvious choice, "a better person than I", seems to have a quite different connotation.
E.g. someone says to me, "I always eat my vegetables, and run a marathon every Tuesday," to which I reply, "You're a __________________ than I, " or "You're more _____________ than I."
