Two monks were arguing over a philosophical question as their teacher passed by. They stopped him and asked him to settle their disagreement. The first monk explained his understanding, to which their teacher replied, “You’re right.” The second monk protested, and made his argument, which was the complete opposite of what the first monk had said. The teacher then answered the second monk, saying, “You’re right.” A third monk who had been listening asked in frustration, “But, Master, you tell both of these monks that they are right, when their explanations are contradictory and couldn’t possibly both be correct.” The teacher replied, “You’re right.”—Zen Story (80)

I am not much into labels and I certainly couldn't care less about designer labels but I adore this Dolce & Gabanna belt. You can't see but the little chain that dangles from this creation has a tiny little key for the lock. Rawr!
