in his
Tao Te Ching)

THE TEN THOUSAND CREATURES: the living beings
THE HUNDRED FAMILIES: the human beings
THE PRINCE: the one who rules
THE MASTER: the one who knows
THE SERVANT: the one who serves
THE SAGE: the sage

 

A little note for fun...

- Have you read…
- No, itís not still available in bookshops.
- You can find it on the Internet.
- On the Internet! I am a human, not a machine!
- What do you mean?
- A book is alive. The paper is sensitive. I can feel its caress with my hand. The ink lightens. The cover decorates it. And the smell… perceptible since you enter an old bookshop.
- If Iíve got it, when you enter an old bookshop, you give a sniff, you go where the smell is the most pregnant, you buy whatever you are looking at, and maybe you read the book.
