What We Have

"A wise man arrived at the village of Akbar and the people lent no importance to him. Except for a small group of young people, the wise man was of no interest to anyone. On the contrary, he became a object of irony for the inhabitants of the city.
One day he was walking down the main street with some of his disciples, a group of men and women began to insult him. The wise man went up to them and blessed them.
When they left, one of the disciples remarked: “They say terrible things, and you answer them with nice words.”
And the wise man replied: “Each one of us can only offer what he or she has.”
