Life's Mystery

I found this in the internet and thought the story was so brilliant that I want to share with you. This might change your life for the better, but again 'we'll never know'.

An old farmer had an old horse for tilling his fields. One day the horse escaped into the hills. When all the farmer’s neighbors sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer replied, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

A week later the horse returned with a herd of wild horses from the hills and this time the neighbors congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was the same, “Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?”

Then, when the farmer’s son attempted to tame one of the wild horses, he fell off its back and broke his leg. Everyone thought this to be very bad luck. Not the farmer, whose only reaction was, “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”

Some weeks later the army marched into the village and gathered every able-bodied youth they found there to join the military. When they saw the farmer’s son with his broken leg they let him off…good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?
