May God Render You Speechless

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of the dictum:

Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.

When the Master entered, they asked him what the words meant.

Said the Master, "Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?"

All of them knew.

Then he said, "Put it into words."

All of them were silent.

--The Spirituality of Imperfection, Ernest Kurtz
