Straight is the line of Duty                                                                                              

Curved is the line of Beauty

Follow the straight line, thou shalt see

The curved  line ever follow thee.   Duty by William Maccall


The Tao de Ching

The ten thousand things have their beginning

In absolute emptiness,

Complete quiet.

Energetically growing,

Restlessly changing,

All complete themselves

By returning to stillness.


The wise see the action and its foundation;

The foolish see only the changes.

From a quiet mind comes vision.

From vision comes knowledge of unity.

From knowledge of unity comes compassion for all.

From compassion comes greatness.

From greatness comes Tao.

 From Tao comes life without end.
