Anecdotes

A person wrote to a very knowledgeable scholar, Sir I watch TV to pass time,

The scholar replied “No TV does not pass your time,  it fails you !

 

Once a person went to the scholar who had taught legendary Avicenna.

He remained there for a lot of time studying, but could not learn well.

When he intended to leave, the teacher said,  you thought that your heart is full of knowledge,  that is why you did not learn well, as if a glass thinks its full of water it can never be filled unless it realizes its emptiness.

You believed that you know everything, so sorry i can not fill an already filled pot.

And please do me a favour!  Please dont tell anyone that you were my student.
