House on Fire

By Admin on 29-03-2017

Mulla Nasruddin’s house was on fire, so he ran up to his roof for safety. There he was, precariously perched on the roof, when his friends gathered in the street below holding a stretched out blanket to him and shouting, “Jump, Mullah, jump!”“Oh no, I won’t,” said the Mullah. “I know you fellows. If I jump, you’ll pull the blanket away just to make a fool of me!”“Don’t be silly. Mullah. This isn’t a joke. This is serious. Jump!”“No,” said Nasruddin. “I don’t trust any of you. Lay that blanket on the ground and I’ll jump.” –                                                          – Antony de Mellow Believing or trusting everybody is dangerous; but believing or trusting nobody at any time is extremely dangerous.
