Point to Ponder

While I write the next post(another tag,courtesy LP), ponder over this:(I posted it in my other blog)


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. 

Something worth pondering over, na?

absolutely lovely :) So difficult to describe it in words. Just as we cannot describe the selfless love of a mother for her child.

Somethings cannot be described and when you describe it's not that something :)
