"If I say it three times, it is true" - Lewis Carroll or Carroll Lewis. I have heard this aphorism from a minister of government in 1975 and other important people, since then. The rain happens regularly; sickness, loss of job, mortgagees sale but it is not a great secret and there is insurance - used to be called "income protection insurance"
