Philosophical Musings - Part V

The Roots of Wisdom

One of the most interesting aspects of life is dealing with various types of people in this world. Although each and every person is unique in their own way, yet truly how different is one person from another? This is what Hong Yingming has to say:

Types of People




Under a clear sky and bright moon,
How many should be flitting free under the heavens?




The flitting moths that alone throw themselves into the night lights?




With a clear spring and green grasses,

How many things should they be able to peck and eat?



The owls that so love the rotted flesh of mice?

Ah, those people,

In this world,
Who do not resemble the moths and owls,
How many can there be?
