One of the brothers said to one of the great old men, If I could find one of the fathers according to my desire, I would choose to die with him,' and the old man said to him with a laugh, 'Good, my lord,' and the brother said, 'Such is my desire.' Now he did not understand the mind (or thought) of the old man. And when the old man saw that the brother was in truth speaking concerning himself that which he thoroughly believed, he said to him, 'If you did find an old man according to your desire, would you be able to dwell with him?' And he said to him, 'Yea.' The old man said to him, ' Well have you said, 'If I could find [an old man] according to my desire '; and afterwards he said to him, 'You do not wish to be subject to the will of the old man, but the old man must be subject to you!' Then the brother rose up, and made apologies to him, saying, ' Forgive me, father; I have boasted greatly. I thought that I was saying that which was good, but I find that I possess that which is of no value.'
