Mulla Nasrudin

The value of truth

   ‘If you want truth,’ Nasrudin told a group of Seekers who had
come to hear his teachings, ‘you will have to pay for it.’
   ‘But why should you have to pay for something like truth?’
asked one of the company.
   ‘Have you not noticed’, said nasrudin, ‘that it is the scarcity of 
a thing which determines its value?’
