A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his car.

The mechanic shouted across the garage,"Hello Doctor! Please come over here for a minute." The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked argumentatively, "So doctor, look at this. I also open hearts, take valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish this will work as a new one. So how come you get the big money, when you and me is doing basically the same work? " The doctor leaned over and whispered to the mechanic ..... "TRY TO DO IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING."

The Useless Tree

Created on 27 January 2011
When Tzu-ch'i of Nan-po was taking a stroll by the Hill of Shang, he spotted a great tree that towered above all the rest. Its branches could shelter a thousand horses and its shade would easily cover them all.

"What kind of tree is this," he thought.

"Its timber must be quite extraordinary."

But when looking up he discovered that the higher branches were too gnarled to be used for floorboards or rafters. When looking down he noticed that the trunk was too soft and pitted to be used for coffins. He licked one of the leaves and it left a burning taste in his mouth. He sniffed the bark and the odor was enough to take away his appetite for three days.

'This wretched tree is completely useless," he exclaimed,

"and this must be why it has grown so large! Aha! --this is exactly the kind of uselessness that the holy man puts to great use."
