Once, there was an old farmer in China who had an old horse to till his fields. One day the horse ran away and was nowhere to be found. The farmer’s neighbors expressed their sympathy with the old man over his bad luck. The farmer replied, who knows if it is bad luck or good luck.

A week later the farmer’s horse returned with a herd of wild horses. The neighbors now congratulated the farmer on his good luck. The farmer replied, who knows if it is good luck or bad luck.

One day, the farmer’s son was trying to tame one of the wild horses. He fell off the horse’s back and broke his leg. The neighbors expressed their sympathy over the farmer’s bad luck. The farmer again replied, who knows if it is bad luck or good luck.

A few weeks later, the army came to the farmer’s village and conscripted every able-bodied young man they found. When they saw the farmer’s son with his broken leg, they didn’t recruit him. 

Who knows if it was good luck or bad luck!
