Nasrudin Knows the Difference Between Knowledge and Knowing
- The young disciple was such a prodigy that
scholars from everywhere sought his advice
and marveled at his learning. When the governor
was looking for an adviser, he came to
Mullah Nasrudin and said,"Tell me, is it true
that the young man knows as much as they say he does?"
"Truth to tell," said Nasrudin "the fellow
reads so much I don't see how he could ever find
the time to know anything."
