    It means that from life’s tragedy’s much is learned. People who are happy and content do not contemplate much – they just enjoy their luxuries. People who are at low ebb; who have pain and sorrow are the ones who achieve wisdom through suffering.

    This was certainly true in Wordsworth world. It was still a very divided world of haves and have nots. You might look up the royalty of the time.
