A great philosophical official, Riko, once asked the strange Zen Master, Nansen, to explain to him the old koan of the goose in the bottle.

"If a man puts a gosling into a bottle," said Riko, "and feeds him until he is full-grown, how can the man get the goose out without killing it or breaking the bottle?"

Nansen gave a great clap with his hands and shouted, "Riko!"

"Yes, Master," said the official with a start.

"See," said Nansen, "the goose is out!"

A student asked his teacher. "Teacher, will I ever learn it all?" The teacher replied, Man only describes what nature has done. With that the student said, "we are not as smart as we think we are if all we have is what has been" The teacher replied, "And now you are learning it all."
