One student asked his teacher about what is love. Then the teacher answered:
“In order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”
Then, the student went to the field, went through the first row and saw one big wheat but he wondered that maybe there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another which was bigger than the previous one. But he again thought that there is maybe another bigger one which is waiting for him.
Later, when the student finished more than half of the wheat field, he started realizing that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, so he knew that he has missed the biggest one and now he regretted about that.
So, he came back to the teacher with his hands empty. The teacher then told him:
“…This is love… You keep looking for a better one, but when later you realize, you have already miss the person….”
Then the student asked his teacher what marriage is. The teacher said again:
“In order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”
Then, the student when to the corn field, but this time he was careful not to repeat the same mistake as before. When he came in the middle of the field, he picked one medium corn and he felt satisfied, and came back to his teacher.
Then the teacher told him the following:
“This time you bring back a corn…. You look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get…. This is marriage.”
