The paper


One night, Nasrudin awoke and exclaimed to his wife, “Wife! Please get up! I have just been divinely inspired! Get me a pencil and piece of paper at once!“

His wife lit a candle, fetched the pencil and paper, and handed it to Nasrudin.

Nasrudin wrote rapidly, and was about to put out the candle and go back to sleep when his wife exclaimed, “Wait. Please read me what you wrote.

Nasrudin picked up the paper and read, “Wherever you go, there you are.”
