The Tao Is Tao (159)

                                                                  159

                                                         If the Taoist sage
                                                    knows all the answers,
                                          why does he no answer questions
                                                      but remains silent?

                                            -- Jos Stabbert


Perhaps silence is the answer to many, most, or all questions.

Whoever claimed that the sage has all the answers,  anyway?
Lao Tse and Chang Chou certainly made no such claim.
