"It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason." ~ The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne "Fortnet or misfortnet, a man can but try; there's nowt to be done wi'out tryin'—cept laying down and dying." ~ Hard Times by Charles Dickens "This is a miserable world," says the Sergeant. "Human life, Mr. Betteredge, is a sort of target—misfortune is always firing at it, and always hitting the mark." ~ The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins He does love prophesying a misfortune, does the average British ghost.

We must live misfortune down, Trot!" ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens "Misfortunes one can endure--they come from outside, they are accidents. But to suffer for one's own faults--ah!--there is the sting of life." ~ Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde "Oh, what a misfortune is mine," cried Bradley, breaking off to wipe the starting perspiration from his face as he shook from head to foot, "that I cannot so control myself as to appear a stronger creature than this, when a man who has not felt in all his life what I have felt in a day can so command himself!" He said it in a very agony, and even followed it with an errant motion of his hands as if he could have torn himself. ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens 'Tis misfortune that awakens ingenuity, or fortitude, or endurance, in hearts where these qualities had never come to life but for the circumstance which gave them a being. ~ The History of Henry Esmond by William Makepeace Thackeray
