Sharing: Bad Luck? Good Luck? Who knows...Future is uncertain

An old farmer used a horse to till his fields. One day the horse ran away, and when the farmer’s neighbours sympathized with the old man over his bad luck, the farmer shrugged his shoulders and replied: “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”
A week later the horse returned with a herd of wild mares,and this time the neighbours congratulated the farmer on his good luck. His reply was: “Good luck? Bad Luck? Who knows?”
Then, when the farmer’s son was attempting to tame on of the wild horses, he fell and broke his leg. Everyone agreed this was very bad luck. But the farmer’s only reaction was: “Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?”
A week later, the army marched into the village and drafted all the young men they could find. When they saw the farmer’s son with his broken leg, they let him stay behind. Good luck? Bad luck?
As you see, we can never know. Future is uncertain...
