A Thought We've Been Pondering —
from The Codeless Code
A novice asked his master: “What separates a monk from his master?”
His master replied: “Ten thousand mistakes!”

The novice, not understanding, sought to avoid all error. An abbot observed and brought the novice to the master for correction.

The master explained: “I have made ten thousand mistakes; others have made ten thousand mistakes...”

Asked the novice: “What of the old monk who labors in the cubicle next to mine? Surely he has made ten thousand mistakes.”

The master shook his head sadly. “Ten mistakes, a thousand times each.”
That's it for now!
