It was read by a man who had lost his sight.
The dumb repeated it word for word;
And deaf was he who listened and heard.

which way to go to reach his destination.
There are two men at the fork,
one of whom always tells the truth
while the other always lies.
The hiker doesn't know which is which, though.
He may ask one of the men
only one question to find his way.
Which man does he ask, and what is the question?

Suppose you want to send in the mail a valuable object to a friend.
You have a box which is big enough to hold the object.
The box has a locking ring which is large enough to have a lock,
attached and you have several locks with keys.
However, your friend does not have the key to any lock that you have.
You cannot send the key in an unlocked box since it may be stolen or copied.
How do you send the valuable object, locked, to your friend - so it may be opened by your friend?

Send the box with a lock attached and locked.
Your friend attaches his or her own lock and sends the box back to you.
You remove your lock and send it back to your friend.
Your friend may then remove the lock she or he put on and open the box.
