Its not complicated or is It?
Dear readers, something to ponder on this lazy Sunday.
Take a man whose third finger is bent and cannot be stretched out straight. It is not painful, neither does it interfere with his work, yet if there were anyone who could make it straight, he would think nothing of journeying such a distance as from Qin to Qu, simply because his finger is not as good as those of other people. But to be grieved because one’s finger is not as good as other people’s, and not be grieved because one’s heart is not as good as other people’s, this is called ignorance of the relative importance of categories. – Mencius, Warring States Period ( The Little book of Chinese Proverbs)
