A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:

LOOKING AT THE BAMBOO TREES
One day when the d.o.m. was looking at the bamboo trees in the back yard of a neighbor, he saw the tall bamboo trees were tall and the short ones are short. And one of the tall ones said to him: -You are too short!
The d.o.m. said: -O. K.
And one of the short ones said: -You are too tall.
He said: -O.K.
The conversation then ended.
