The Tao Is Tao (119)

                                                                            119

                                                                        Suffering
                                                                  is not the mother
                                                                of beauty and truth,
                                                            but the child of ignorance.
                                                              Yet to the Taoist sage,
                                                          truth and beauty can come
                                                               even from suffering.
