Your candle has burnt out, brother.^1


In early times in Japan, bamboo-and-paper lanterns were used with
candles inside. A blind man, visiting a friend one night, was offered
a lantern to carry home with him.

“I do not need a lantern,” he said. “Darkness or light is all the same
to me.”

“I know you do not need a lantern to find your way,” his friend
replied, “but if you don’t have one, someone else may run into you. So
you must take it.”

The blind man started off with the lantern and before he had walked
very far someone ran squarely into him.

“Look out where you are going!” he exclaimed to the stranger. “Can’t
you see this lantern?”

“Your candle has burnt out, brother,” replied the stranger.
