Fortune and Misfortune

Fortune and misfortune a short story

Once upon the time, there was an old farmer who had worked his yields for a long time. One day his steed fled. After hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. "Such misfortune," they said thoughtfully. 

"Perhaps," the rancher answered. 

The following morning the pony returned, carrying with it three other wild ponies. "How magnificent," the neighbors shouted. 

"Perhaps," answered the elderly person. 

The next day, his child endeavored to ride one of the untamed ponies, was tossed, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their compassion on his incident. 

"Perhaps," addressed the rancher. 

The following day, military authorities went to the town to draft young fellows into the military. Seeing that the child's leg was broken, they cruised him by. The neighbors praised the farmer on how well things had turned out. 

"Perhaps," said the rancher.
