Two Monks and Water

Every once in a while, I come across an anecdote that makes me really think.  I think this is brilliant and therefore am passing it along to you.


One monk meets another monk in the hall of a monastery near a fountain.  The first monk asks the second, “Is that water cold?”

The second monk responds by pushing the first into the fountain.

The first monk clamors to his feet, sopping wet.  “What did you do that for?”  

The second monk states, “I could have told you all day if I thought the water was cold, but this way, now you know.”  

That, my friends, is wisdom.
