The Tao is Tao (78)

378






                                                  78

                                          Hurling insults
                                        at the Taoist sage
                                                is like
                                          throwing stones
                                          at empty space.

                                          The Taoist sage
                                           clings to nothing
                                             and therefore
                                        has nothing to lose.
                                        He cannot be hurt
                                   because he has accepted
                                              emptiness.
