Of any two options choose the third

A judge in a village court had gone on vacation. Nasrudin was asked to be temporary judge for a day. Nasrudin sat on the Judge’s chair with a serious face, gazing around the public and ordered the first case be brought-up for hearing.

“You are right,” said Nasrudin after hearing one side.

“You are right,” he said after hearing the other side.

“But both cannot be right,” said a member of public sitting in the audience.

“You are right, too” said Nasrudin.


  • Accentuate the positive.
  • Sympathy is as important to a judge as judgment.
  • Don’t be afraid to look beyond both sides of an argument.
  • If you can only see two sides of an argument you are missing something.
  • To forgive is divine
  • Even judges can be fools
    • Conversely, even fools can be judges.
  • Everybody is right, in their own respective ways.
  • Justice is not always just.
  • The person who says that you are ‘right’ might be wrong.
  • You only ever believe yourself, and your own point of view.
  • There is no real truth, or even reality.
  • “All Faith is false, all Faith is true: Truth is the shattered mirror strown \ In myriad bits; while each believes his little bit the whole to own.” — Sir Richard Francis Burton
  • Everyone is right in their own way. If everyone know this, then the world would be much better place to live.
  • In the case of contradictions the core concept must come under consideration; in this case Truth.
  • The relative is the bridge to the absolute.
  • Truth can only be found from a state of non attachment.
