Boat Man Story

 


A professor went on a research to find what culture is in the island. He ride a boat to reach the island and it will journey for about an hour. The place was bored in silence when the professor ask question to the boat man.

Do you know about Philosophy? The professor asked. The boat man answered, I don’t know more about Philosophy but a little less. And the professor said that, Do you know that you miss one fourth of your life and continue to ask more questions.

Do you know about Science? The professor asked again. The boat man answered,  I don’t know more about Science but a little less.  The professor smile and said you miss again another one fourth of your life and continue to ask more questions.

Do you know more about Mathematics? The professor asked again. The boat man answered, I don’t know more about Mathematics but a little less. The professor are boastfully high to see himself that he know everything while in the middle of the ocean.

The boat man are now afraid that he already miss three fourth off his life and one more question from the professor will be a whole life to be miss.

The boat seems to be in trouble, it will sink in the middle and they have to swim on the sea shore. The boat man asked the professor. Do you know how to swim? If not, you miss your whole life here.

We don’t know everything in this world and we must keep humble because we never know that the person you are dealing with know something that you didn’t know. - dlysen

    First of all, I laughed because there's a little humor in the story.
    I remember the quote, "little knowledge is dangerous", but with the Professor, his knowledge is too wide that it becomes fatal to him. Yet, he didn't know he missed something to learn. Good job, boatman!
    I like this post. 😉
