#231Murphy was an optimist.
#232Murphy's Law is recursive. Washing your car to make it rain doesn't work.
#233Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
-- Lao Tsu
#234My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior
spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive
with our frail and feeble mind.
-- Albert Einstein
#235My theology, briefly, is that the universe was dictated but not signed.

#236Nasrudin called at a large house to collect for charity. The servant said
"My master is out." Nasrudin replied, "Tell your master that next time he
goes out, he should not leave his face at the window. Someone might steal it."
#237Nasrudin returned to his village from the imperial capital, and the villagers
gathered around to hear what had passed. "At this time," said Nasrudin, "I
only want to say that the King spoke to me." All the villagers but the
stupidest ran off to spread the wonderful news. The remaining villager
asked, "What did the King say to you?" "What he said -- and quite distinctly,
for everyone to hear -- was 'Get out of my way!'" The simpleton was overjoyed;
he had heard words actually spoken by the King, and seen the very man they
were spoken to.
#238Nasrudin walked into a shop one day, and the owner came forward to serve

"Of course."
"Have you ever seen me before?"
"Then how do you know it was me?"
#239Nasrudin walked into a teahouse and declaimed, "The moon is more useful

"Why?", he was asked.
"Because at night we need the light more."
#240Nasrudin was carrying home a piece of liver and the recipe for liver pie.
Suddenly a bird of prey swooped down and snatched the piece of meat from his
hand. As the bird flew off, Nasrudin called after it, "Foolish bird! You
have the liver, but what can you do with it without the recipe?"
