on misfortune

Blenheim Palace, The birthplace of Winston Churchill [1874-1965]

Winston Churchill's wife attempted to offer her husband comfort on yet another setback. 
Lady Churchill: It's a blessing in disguise.
Sir Winston Churchill: It's a damn good disguise.
After the war, the Monarch offered Winston the highest honour of becoming the first Duke of London, but he declined.

An earlier reference to Churchill here.
