    In short, there is in life an element of elfin coincidence...

    In short, there is in life an element of elfin coincidence which people reckoning on the porsaic may perpetually miss.As it has been well expressed in the paradox of Poe, wishdom should reckon on the unforeseen.

    What does it mean? Could you rewrite it?

    I haven't met the expression 'elfin coincidence' before. It seems to refer to the supernatural (but not spectacularly supernatural - just a bit odd).
