04/19/17 Grif.Net – Complaining

It takes a =
disciplined spirit to endure the monastery on Mount Serat in Spain. One =
of the fundamental requirements of this religious order is that the =
young men must maintain silence. Opportunities to speak are scheduled =
once every two years, at which time they are allowed to speak only two =
words.

 

One =
young initiate in this religious order, who had completed his first two =
years of training, was invited by his superior to make his first =
two-word presentation. "Terrible food," he said. =

 

Two =
years later the invitation was once again extended. The young man used =
this forum to exclaim, "Lumpy bed."

 

Arriving at =
his superior’s office two years later he proclaimed, "I quit." =

 

The =
superior looked at this young monk and said, "You know, it doesn’t =
surprise me a bit. All you’ve done since you arrived is complain, =
complain, complain.”
