A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on tao, energy, conservation, and self-care

But you now, you wear your soul on your sleeve, exhausting your energy, propping yourself up on a tree, mumbling, or bent over your desk, asleep. Heaven gives you a form and you wear it out by pointless argument.

A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on tao, virtue, and wisdom

My description of wisdom has nothing to do with benevolence and righteousness, it is to do with being wise in one's own virtue, nothing more. My description of being has nothing to do with benevolence and righteousness, it is that one should be led by one's innate nature, nothing more.

The fact is that those who do not see themselves but who see others, who fail to grasp of themselves but who grasp others, take possession of what others have but fail to possess themselves. they are attracted to what others enjoy but fail to find enjoyment in themselves.
