Two Philosophers


Recommended Posts

Two philosophers were sitting at a restaurant, discussing whether or not there was a difference between misfortune and disaster.

“There is most certainly a difference,†said one.

“If the cook suddenly died and we couldn’t have our dinner that would be a misfortune,

but certainly not a disaster.

On the other hand, if a cruise ship carrying the Congress was to sink in the middle of the ocean,

now that would be a disaster, but by no stretch of the imagination would it be a misfortune
