The difference between a misfortune and a calamity

The difference between a misfortune and a calamity – Is it just me, or do I get the feeling that Disraeli didn’t like Gladstone all that much?

“The difference between a misfortune and a calamity? If Gladstone fell into the Thames, it would be a misfortune. But if someone dragged him out again, it would be a calamity.”
— Benjamin Disraeli
