The Silence

  • Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks.

  • By nightfall on the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out.

  • The first monk said, “Oh, no! The candle is out.”

  • The second monk said, “Aren’t we not suppose to talk?”

  • The third monk said, “Why must you two break the silence?”

  • The fourth monk laughed and said, “Ha! I’m the only one who didn’t speak.”
