Yunyan

‘Yunyan asked Shishuang, “Where have you come from?”
Shishuang said, “From Weishan.”
Yunyan asked, “How long were you there?”
Shishuang said, “One year.”
Yunyan said, “So you could have become the head of the monastery.”
Shishuang said, “Although I was there, I didn’t learn anything.”
Yunyan said, “Weishan didn’t learn anything either.”
Shishuang had nothing to say.’

I think Shishuang was very smart to keep his mouth shut at the end.
