Saying

Real opportunities are like exceptions. You have to catch them when they are thrown.

But if you agree with "Misfortunes are opporunities in disguise", then you'd soon realise you are actually catching... Throwable ;)!!

It actually depends on what is your catch :) . I guess that is the difference between Fortunate and Unfortunate people.

What I meant was if you were the kind who'd believe in taking life as it comes, you'd want to catch everything - opportunities and misfortunes (apparently turning them into opportunities as well). If you have to do that in Java, you'd probably catch "Throwable".
