Tao Te Ching: Chapter 21- Meditation on Faith

The greatest Virtue is to follow Tao and Tao alone.
The Tao is elusive and intangible.
Oh, it is intangible and elusive, and yet within is image.
Oh, it is elusive and intangible, and yet within is form.
Oh, it is dim and dark, and yet within is essence.
This essence is very real, and therein lies faith.
From the very beginning until now its name has never been forgotten.
Thus I perceive the creation.
How do I know the ways of creation?
Because of this.

So, [info]whuffle proposed a questions meme, taken up by [info]browngirl and thus reaching (?) who sent it toamaebi  who gave it to me..

You leave me a comment to this post and I will ask you a question. You put the question I ask and your answer to it up in your own journal with the text of this master post at the top as an explanation. Your responsibility is to then ask a question of anyone who comments on your post. That person is then responsible for putting the question you asked of them and their answer to it into their journal. And the questions keep getting asked and answered, passed member to member through the community. In the end, this should propagate a whole bunch of interesting questions and answers by different members of the community! 

Her question to me was: "Have you found an honest person yet, o Diogenes?"

I answered:  Yes, my wife, Dianne.  She is totally honest.  She is the most transparent, straightforward, dependable person i have ever met.
