The Vow of Silence
Four monks made a pact one day. they would meditate in silence for seven days, duuring which time no one was to say a single word.
Late at night on the first day their one candle suddenly started to flicker.
"Oh the candle's about to go out!" said one of the monks
" Remember now, we're not supposed to talk." said a another monk.
" why do you guys keep talking?" asked a thrid monk
later just before the time was up the fourth monk jumped up and said " Ha-ha I'm the only one who didn't say anything! "
