The Miracle

A yogi wanted to cross a river and had not the penny to pay the ferryman, so he walked across the river on his feet. Another yogi hearing of this said the miracle was only worth the penny it would have cost to cross on the ferry.

-W. Somerset Maugham, A Writer's Notebook
(London, 1949-51)
