Yesterday, I was watching a very old Tamil movie 'Bale Pandiya' (பலே பாண்டியா). The hero of the movie would be reported dead. The widow's friend would try to pacify the grief stricken woman by saying that she did not believe him to be dead and he would surely walk in one day alive.
However, the widow would say this: "All that we think won't happen, don't you know".
Her friend would give a fitting reply, "Then, things might happen that we don't think about-right?"
The grieving woman would instantly realize the logic behind it and brighten up.
For the benefit of Tamil readers, I translate the conversation below:
"நாம் நினைப்பதெல்லாம் நடந்துவிடாது என்பது தெரியாதா?"
"அப்படியென்றால், நாம் நினைக்காததெல்லாம் நடக்கலாம், இல்லையா?"
I don't know who wrote the dialog but he surely knew what he was saying. He must have firmly believed in MIRACLES.
