There is a story of a dervish who spoke with a young man who was very interested in his words of wisdom. The young man said, "If I come to your part of the world, I will come to see you. Will you tell me where you live?" The dervish replied, "I live in the place of the liars." This young man thought, "He is a wise man, he makes such a deep impression upon me. I cannot understand that he lives in the place of the liars. It seemed to me that every word he spoke was truth."
