The Difference Between Misfortune and Calamity

If Mr. Gladstone were to fall into the Thames, it would be a misfortune. But if someone dragged him out again, it would be a calamity.  -- Benjamin Disraeli

True enough, Jon, we feel for people who have to be displaced - taken out of their comfort zones. However, in as much as we sympathize, we also hope they remain where they are and leave us in our comfort zones happy and peaceful too. I am reminded of people who have met some misfortunes and yet others thank God for allowing things to happen as they are also their blessings in disguise.
