True Saint…


If you want to nourish a bird,
you should let it live any way it chooses.
Creatures differ because they have different likes and dislikes.
Therefore the sages never require the same ability from all creatures. . .
concepts of right should be founded on what is suitable.
The true saint leaves wisdom to the ants,
takes a cue from the fishes,
and leaves willfulness to the sheep.

Chang Tzu
