Something usually does......................

"We do not know what the future will bring, except that it will be quite different from anything we could predict.  I have said in another context that it is a disadvantage of 'the long run' that in the long run we are all dead.  But I could have said equally well that it is a great advantage of 'the short run' that in the short run we are all alive.  Life and history are made up of short runs.  If we are at peace in the short run that is something.  The best we can do is put off disaster, if only in the hope, which is not necessarily a remote one, that something will turn up."

-John Maynard Keynes,  July 1937
