Love Versus Truth: A Short Story

A guru and a grasshopper are conversing over coffee.

The grasshopper says to the guru, “Guru, your wisdom surpasses mine, tell me oh giant of the clouds . . . Which is the MOST IMPORTANT: Love or truth?”

The guru looks at the grasshopper and says, “Love, why of course, the answer is love.”

The grasshopper is sad. He says, “But great guru, I wanted truth to prevail. I wanted truth to win.”

The guru looks at the grasshopper and says, “The truth of the matter is: Love is more important than truth.” He looks away from the grasshopper and says, “Get it?”

Grasshopper smiles.

Guru says, “Young grasshopper, you still have a lot to learn.”
