The Tao Is Tao (47)

#47







                                                            47

                                                      Ignorance
                                                      is the root
                                                  of all suffering.

                                                  The ignorant
                                           try to escape suffering
                                       by accumulating knowledge,
                                           in this way increasing
                                               their ignorance.

                                                     The wise
                                    try to to find meaning in suffering
                                              through knowledge
                                            in this way increasing
                                                 their suffering.

                                                The Taoist sage
                                          eats apricots in summer
                                    and sits close to the fire in  winter.
