Can it alter the cause, or unravel the mystery of human events?

„Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed“

—  Alexander Pope eighteenth century English poet 1688 - 1744

Letter, written in collaboration with John Gay, to William Fortescue (23 September 1725).
A similar remark was made in a letter to John Gay (16 October 1727): "I have many years magnify'd in my own mind, and repeated to you a ninth Beatitude, added to the eight in the Scripture: Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed."
Вариант: Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.
Контексте: "Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed" was the ninth Beatitude which a man of wit (who, like a man of wit, was a long time in gaol) added to the eighth.
