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...

- A new director is in charge at the Cantonal Museum of Photography.
- Where have you read it?
- In the Journal de Genève of the 8th of September 1995; he is going… well, listen: “… maintain and develop the influence of photographers in Switzerland and abroad.”
- Is there an article? Let me see, I’d like to read it.
- All right, here it is.
- Whoa! He’s a “big name”, according to the “Valdese political advisor”. Sure, people for such things must be important. But… how could you read…?
- What’s the matter?
- It is written : “influence of the Museum”, and not…
- Isn’t it the same?

FROM THOSE WHO ARE WEAK
