A student walked up to the clerk at the language laboratory and said. “May I have a blank tape, please?” “What language are you studying?” asked the clerk. “French.” said the student. “Sorry, we don’t have any blank tapes in French.” “Well, do you have any blank tapes in English?” “Yes, we do.” “Good. I’ll take one of those.” It makes as much sense to speak of a blank tape as being French or English as it does to speak of a person as being French or English. French or English is your conditionin

A worried looking fellow walks into the psychiatrist’s office smoking pot and wearing love-beads, bell-bottom trousers frayed at the ends and shoulder-length hair. The psychiatrist says, “You claim you are not a hippie. Then how do you explain the clothes, the hair the pot?” “That’s what I’m here to find out, doctor.” 🙂 To know things is to be learned. To know others is to be wise. To know the self is to be enlightened.

A woman in a coma was dying. She suddenly had a feeling that she was taken up to heaven and stood before the Judgement Seat. “Who are you?” a Voice said to her. “I’m the wife of the mayor.” she replied. “I did not ask you whose wife you are but who you are.” “I’m the mother of four children.” “I did not ask whose mother you are, but who you are.” “I’m a schoolteacher.” “I did not ask you what your profession is but who you are.” And so it went. No matter what she replied, she did not seem to giv

A disciple came to Maruf Karkhi, the Muslim Master, and said, “I have been talking to people about you. The Jews say you are one of their own. The Christians consider you to be one of their saints. And the Muslims look upon you as a glory to Islam.” Maruf replied, “That’s what they say here in Baghdad. When I lived in Jerusalem the Jews dubbed me a Christian; the Christians, a Muslim; and the Muslims, a Jew.” “Then what are we to think of you?” “Think of me as a man who said this about himself:

A woodcarver called Ching had just finished work on a bell-frame. Everyone who saw it marvelled for it seemed to be the work of spirits. When the Duke of Lu saw it, he asked, “What sort of genius is yours that you could make such a thing?” The woodcarver replied. “Sire. I am only a simple workman. I am no genius. But there is one thing. When I am going to make a bell-frame I meditate for three days to calm my mind. When I have meditated for three days I think no more about rewards or emoluments.

An old woman died and was taken to the Judgment Seat by the angels. While examining her records however, the Judge could not find a single act of charity performed by her except for a carrot she had once given to a starving beggar. Such, however, is the power of a single deed of love that it was decreed that she be taken up to heaven on the strength of that carrot. The carrot was brought to court and given to her. The moment she caught hold of it, it began to rise as if pulled by some invisible

There was an old Arab judge who was known for his sagacity. One day a shopkeeper came to him to complain that goods from his shop were being stolen but he was unable to catch the thief. The judge commanded the door of the shop to be taken off its hinges, carried to the market-place and given fifty lashes because it had failed to do its duty of keeping the thief out of the store. A large crowd collected to see this strange sentence being carried out. When the lashes had been administered, the jud
