Ch 02 The Morals Of Dervishes Story 43

A pious man saw an acrobat in great dudgeon, full of wrath and foaming at the mouth. He asked: `What is the matter with this fellow?? A bystander said: `Someone has insulted him.? He remarked: `This base wretch is able to lift a thousand mann of stones and has not the power to bear one word.?

 Abandon thy claim to strength and manliness. 
 Thou art weak-minded and base, whether thou be a man or woman. 
 If thou art able, make a sweet mouth. 
 It is not manliness to strike the fist on a mouth. 
 Although able to tear up an elephant?s front 
 He is not a man who possessed no humanity. 
 A man?s nature is of earth. 
 If he is not humble he is not a man.
