Four students were told by their master to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks. By nightfall on the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out.
The first monk said, "Oh, no! The candle is out."
The second monk said, "You are not supposed to talk."
The third monk said, "You two broke the silence."
The fourth monk laughed and said, "Ha! I'm the only one who didn't speak."
