Those who know do not say!


ಌ⊱♡✲ The Fragrance of the Rose ♡ ✲ ♡⊰ಌ

☼ The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of
Lao-tzu’s dictum:
“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,
they asked him what the words meant.
Said the master,
“Which of you knows the
fragrance of a rose?”
All of them indicated that they knew.
Then he said,
“Put it into words.”

All of them were silent…♡
