They wanted to prove that Siyya, the village elder, was just as foolish as all others. They went to him. One boy held a small bird, cupped in his hands, behind his back. And they were to ask whether the bird was dead or alive? If the wise man said it was dead, he would let the bird fly; if he said it was alive, he’d wring its neck and kill it. One way or the other, the wise old man had to lose. Siyya, they asked, Is the bird alive or dead? The boy was getting ready to let the bird fly or wring its neck and kill it depending on the answer. Siyya, the old man wise man looked at the boys in the eye. He reflected for a while and said firmly: "That Power Is In Your Hands". About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
