He Left His Rabbi, I Left Mine

There is a story of two students of the same great Rabbi. One tried slavishly to follow the way of his master; the second developed his own methods and conclusions. Meeting in later life, one asked the other "Why didn't you follow the path of our Rabbi?" The second answered, "I did, more faithfully than you. You see, he grew up and left his master, and I grew up and left mine." No duplicates.
