The Tao is Tao (51)

#51







                                                                      51

                                                     To cease thinking is folly
                                                    where survival is at stake,
                                                    yet it is even greater folly
                                                        not to enter silence
                                              where thinking  carries no weight.

                                                         The Taoist sage
                                              thinks when thinking is necessary,
                                                  but she never breaks silence.
