A Koan

A novice by chance met Stallman pushing a heavy cart on the silver road. The novice asked to help, and Stallman agreed.

When they sat down to rest, the novice asked Stallman about how best to apply himself, that he might become a better hacker and do good. “Hack,” Stallman replied, “And, if you have time later, help me unload this cart.”
