Oh, my! I really like this:
At the end of his spiritual talks, Gurdjieff said "Amen." When asked to translate "Amen," one of Gurdjieff's closet pupils answered, "Give it a try!"

— Michel Legris quoted in Gurdjieff: Essays and Reflections on the Man and His Teaching edited by Jacob Needleman and George Baker

To Practice This Thought: The next time "Amen" crosses your lips, remember it means you are agreeing to give whatever preceded it a try.
I found it on the Spirituality and Practice site.
