The silence of the night

Author: Paulo Coelho

 

A Sufi master and his disciple were walking in an African desert. When the night fell, both of them built a tent and prepared to rest.

“What a silence,” observed the disciple.

“Never say ‘what a silence’,” answered the master. “Always say: I am not being able to listen to nature.”
