Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master While Henry Bolingbroke complains about being banished from the Kingdom of England for six years by King Richard II, his father John of Gaunt tries to comfort him by saying that six winters are a short period of time. Henry retorts that time flies when people are happy, but passes extremely slowly when people are struck by misfortune.
