~ 107. The Light in the Garden ~

Nasruddin's neighbor was complaining about how dark it was inside his house.
"It's not at all like your nice house here," the neighbor said. "Your house is full of light, but my house is so dark. I don't know what to do."
"I sympathize," Nasruddin replied. "Light is very important." He then thought for a few moments. "How about in your garden?" Nasruddin asked. "Is there light in your garden?"
"Well, of course there's light in the garden. The garden is full of light!"
"Then that's the solution!" exclaimed Nasruddin. "Just move your house into the garden where it's light."

Inspired by The Wit and Wisdom of Nasraddin Hodja by Nejat Muallimoglu
