Don't think, don't sleep

When he was a child,

One day

His father said to him:

"Don't think, my child.

God never thinks."

Since then, he never cared

To learn the art of thinking.


When he was a child,

One day

His mother said to him:

"Don't sleep, my child.

God never sleeps."

Since then, he never cared

To learn the art of sleeping.
