take for me to get Enlightened?"
"Well", said Nasrudin "It will take about 7 years."
This alarmed the student who said "What if I practice meditation for
8 hours every day, yoga for 4 hours, good deeds for 4 more, and study
for 4 hours every night?"
Nasrudin promptly said "Then it will surely take at least 14 years!"
