Mulla Nasrudin – We come and we go

WHERE do we come from and where do we go to, and what is it like?’ thundered a wandering dervish.

‘I don’t know,’said Nasrudin; ‘but it must be pretty terrible.’

A  bystander asked him why. ‘Observation shows me that when we arrive as babies we are crying. And many of us leave crying and reluctantly, too.’
