A Sufi story tells of the Turkish Mullah, Nasrudin, who is down on his hands and knees, in the middle of the night, looking for his house key under the light from a streetlamp. A neighbor comes to his aid, but after some time neither of them has found the key. The neighbor asks if Nasrudin is sure that this is where he dropped it. Nasrudin replies that he didn't drop the key here, under the light, but over there in the dark. When the surprised neighbor asks, "Then why are we searching under the streetlamp?" Nasrudin explains, "Because the light is better here."
