Why Are You Crying So Sadly?


One late autumn night, the disciple awoke crying.

So the master asked the disciple, “Did you have a nightmare?”


“Did you have a sad dream?”

“No,” said the disciple. “I had a sweet dream.”

“Then why are you crying so sadly?”

The disciple wiped his tears away and quietly answered, “Because the dream I had can’t come true.”
