A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?'

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.''
But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the saint. 'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you're angry?'

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint.
Finally he explained, 'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.'

Then the saint asked, 'What happens when two people fall in love? They don't shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small...'

The saint continued, 'When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's all.
That is how close two people are when they love each other.'


  1. Long back, I was told about this story by a friend.
    Its never too late to start whispering!

  2. The guy at following link has lifted the post above.First I felt like being plagiarised, but then he gave a backlink. I later thought its good to be quoted, and some one really liked the story.

  3. never heard the thoughts put so beautifully....

  4. Consequently, when you are hopeful and settle on to go away a hospital where you have to bring your baby, you should perceive that top private hospitals in Pune should have both knowledgeable gynecologists and pediatricians.
