of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell
preacher noticed someone sitting quietly and meditating.
said, “Is this a spiritual exercise? I have never seen anything more bereft of
spiritual value in my life. Where there is no hearing of the word of God, there
is no spiritual benefit.”
Gadfly said, “You are too accustomed to your own familiar stream and have
associated the sound of its babbling with water. Is the lake less wet because
it is silent?”
