Stories 5: I am special…

There is a story about four Zen students who decide to go into a week of silent meditation together. They sit down, a couple of hours go by and one of them says, “I wonder if I remembered to turn off the stove.” A second one responds, “You fool, you have spoken, and we had agreed not to speak.” A third student then says, ” What are you thinking about, now you too have spoken.” To which the fourth one says, “I am the only one who has not spoken.”
