Sounds of 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.”
