Chapter 16: In the Lake of the Void

“There is no charge, Monsieur,” said the lady of the house. Astonished, but not disposed to argue the matter, the gentleman departed. The next night he returned to the brothel and repeated his performance of the previous night. Upon leaving this time however, he was shocked to learn that his bill was eight hundred francs.

“Impossible!” the American shrieked. “I was here last evening and I got everything and you didn’t charge me a sou.”

“Ah,” said the Madame, “but last night you were on television.”

Yes, sometimes you may get something free, but be aware: you may be on television.

In fact there is nothing in life that you can get without paying for it - and you only get as much as you are ready to pay for. When you are ready to pay with your life, you get eternal life in return. Nothing is free, nothing can be free.

Enough for today.
