Greatest Paradox
Sunny • onGeneral 12 years ago • 2 min read

Many years ago, a Law teacher came across a student who was willing to learn but was unable to pay the fees. The student struck a deal saying, "I will pay your fee the day I win my first case in the court".

Teacher agreed and proceeded with the law course. When the course was finished and teacher started pestering the student to pay up the fee, the student reminded him of the deal and pushed days. Fed up with this, the teacher decided to sue the student in the court of law and both of them decided to argue for themselves.

The teacher put forward his argument saying: "If I win this case, as per the court of law, the student has to pay me as the case is about his non-payment of dues. And if I lose the case, student will still pay me because he would have won his first case. So either way I will have to get the money".

Equally brilliant, the student argued back saying: "If I win the case, as per the court of law, I don't have to pay anything to the teacher as the case is about my non-payment of dues. And if I lose the case, I don't have to pay him because I haven't won my first case yet. So either way, I am not going to pay the teacher anything". This is one of the greatest paradoxe ' s ever recorded in history.

    the key in solving somethig is to believe, give and recieve...action and reaction...give more recive more...give something of great importance recieve something of great's like a's beyond average people's could you give more and recieve more? so if I will give my house away I'll be richer than bill gates? of course not cause you would not have done God's wishing you would have torture yourself to live have to give away and still survive after...don't be so drastic in takeing decisions...that's why it's so hard to believe in God..cause God is in everything..and the decision like in a paradox remains your's weather you believe there is one or not.....when the odds look have to believe you can do it if you want to win...if you say you can't wim them why are you playing for..if your mind say's you can't and you are still in the field playing?

    I know that any paradox is something that we can never there is no greater or smaller paradox.....cause...u can write and repeat this or any other paradox till the end of time and still not solve what I'm saying..with all the ink of the world and the electricity and all u can not write this paradox or repeat it in ur mind till u solve it.if u stress enough u can surpass bill gates in fortune but u still can't solve a all the paradoxes in the world are nonequal and infinite equal in length at the same u got yourself another paradox....cause I said that no paradox could ever be solved and I solved all of them right now.and I can continue telling more about them and make you think if I say 2-3 more words you will have it solved....but you still won't do it..cause weather you are 2 or 201 questions ahead of me....we will still be at the same distance of infinite:)
