Every single one of our lives, in myriad ways, is profoundly affected by the incursions of fortune: there are no exceptions. Fortune creates opportunities, and fortune takes them away. It indiscriminately rewards and punishes both the bad and the good (think of the Book of Job in this light, recalling that not even the God of the Bible in speaking to Job attempts to justify what has befallen him, as Job has suffered from the ravages of nature and man). Fortune resists but is not immune to claims of fairness and unfairness, although the line between misfortune and injustice is sometimes razor thin and difficult to discern.
