I am improving on this one, I forgot the details.

A monk was the victim of a sandal theft. He went to his master and said "Master, what a terrible thing". The Master replied "We shall see".

Later that day the monk was walking barefoot and a large tree branch missed wacking him on the head by just one half inch, just shy of the height of his sandals. He said to the master, "Master, what great luck!". The master replied, "We shall see".

The next evening when the monk was creeping along to the outhouse in the dark he tripped over the branch and broke his leg. He went to the master and cried, "Master, what horrible fortune!", the master replied "We shall see".

While the monk was laid up in hospital a great fire burned down his monastery. He thought to himself, "Life is merely a sine curve, and an exciting one at that."
