Q247. Which do you belong to?

A. One is so blind that he can’t see his mother before him and so deaf that he can’t hear a crack of thunder.

The other is so sharp-sighted that he can see an ant in a forest thousands of miles away and so sharp-eared that he can hear an ant moving in a forest thousands of miles away.

Which is the greater of the two?

Each of us belongs to either of them.

Which do you belong to?
