The Hermit and the Wolf

A hermit drew a line in the sand and said:
“You may not cross this line.”
Then he drew a circle saying:
“You must stay in this circle.
You can cross it, but not over the line”.
Then the tempest came and the line disappeared.
A wolf was standing in the circle.
Cold and rain had exhausted him, but he did not move.
He did not know whether the line still exists,
when it is no longer drawn in the sand.
