The Tao Is Tao - (27 & 28) - Daily Tao

                                                                               27
                                                         Arguing about the inexpressible
                                                                           creates
                                                                     hatred and fear.
                                                           The Taoist sage knows only
                                                                            silence
                                                                                               brings compassion.

                                        28
                               The ignorant
                   argue about the indefinable
                               and destroy
                     wisdom and compassion.
                      The Taoist sage knows
                                the essence
                                       lies
                               beyond words
                      and he therefore prefers
                                  to be silent.

How will i know to be silent
unless i am told to shut up.

I must remember
that words can carry silence,
and silence carries meaning.

I think that any issue
that must be decided by force
was not worth resolving.
or could not be resolved
by any means.

Re: "and he thereby prefers to be a saint"
Hey, it doesn't hurt(too much) to try.
