RIVER AND LAKE
Posted on Apr.21.2009 @ 09:36PM EDT by chontri

River or lake is without intention to trick anyone.

Therefore, they'd fall into it and get drown in there.
And they'd say that the river (or the lake) tricked me.

The same with the words of the man of no one.
They are very plain and simple,
without any intention to trick any body.
But people did not understand or misunderstood them,
they got wrong or bad meaning from their own thinking
and they'd say that the man of no one tricked me
