Poverty

In 'down and out' Orwell says that poverty can be reassuring. Once you find yourself truly poor you can relax in the knowledge that you can't fall any lower. You have seen the very worst situation available, and you can survive it. (Reminiscent of Stoicism, considering the very worst possible outcome and relising that it is survivable.)
