Two Monks

by on July 21, 2014

Two monks were walking along. One old and one young. They came to a deep stream where a teenage girl was wanting to cross. The older monk crossed and walked ahead. The younger monk picked up the girl and carried her across. He then caught up with the older monk. They walked together silently for a mile.

The older monk spoke first. “Brother, we do not do things like that!” He went on to lecture the young man about proprieties.

Eventually the younger man responded: Brother,
“I put the girl down a mile ago. Are you still carrying her?”
