Bad Luck – A Good Thing?

“You never know what worse luck bad luck has saved you from.” – Cormac McCarthy

It’s true. I really like this quote. It is a positive way of looking at life. No one is denying anyone has bad luck (because we all do),  but they are saying because of that bad luck you may have been saved from something worse. Looking at the sentence structure, I think it is interesting that McCarthy used “worse luck” and “bad luck” in the same sentence. Normally I would use “worse” as a stronger and past tense form of bad in a sentence not including “bad’. Very interesting literally choice but really gets the point across.
