A young man got a horse for his birthday everyone in the boys small village said “How wonderful.” the Zen Master said “We shall see. A year later the boy fell off the horse and broke his both his legs… Everyone said “How terrible.”, again the Zen Master said “We shall see.” A year later war broke out and all the young men of the village had to go off and fight, once again  the whole village said “How fortunate.” Once again, the Zen Master said ” We shall see, but come to think of it, yeah that’s pretty fucking lucky!”
