We’ll See ~ Unknown

A boy is given a horse on his 14th birthday. Everyone in the village says, “Oh how wonderful.”
But a Zen master who lives in the village says, “We’ll see.”

The boy falls off the horse and breaks his foot. Everyone in the village says, “Oh how awful.”
The Zen master says, “We’ll see.”

The village is thrown into war and all the young men have to go to war. But, because of the broken foot, the boy stays behind. Everyone says, “Oh, how wonderful.”
The Zen master says, “We’ll see.”
