The questions and the song

"The Turtle Dove"
Artist: Sophie Anderson
The disciples were full of questions about God. Said the master, "God is the Unknown and the Unknowable. Every statement about him, every answer to your questions, is a distortion of the truth."

The disciples were bewildered. "Then why do you speak about him at all?"

"Why does the bird sing?" said the master. "Not because it has a statement, but because it has a song."
