Not a word

Someone read in the holy books that if one were to refrain from idle talk for forty days, that person would be granted Ruach HaKodesh.This is exactly what he did but nothing in particular happened.With this the person went to see the Ruzhiner Rav to get an explanation. Instead of explaining, the Ruzhiner took him to the stables and said the following:-Look at this horse, not only has he not uttered anything in 40 days, he has not said a bad word since the day he was born. And he also hasn’t merited the Ruach Hakodesh!
