~ from Anthony de Mello, One Minute Wisdom

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzuís 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 indicated that they knew. Then he said, "put it into words." All of them were silent.
