Caine: we are taught that a good man's heart is not shut within itself but is open to the hearts of others. --- I strive for no thing. I strive to reach no place. Unless you could call the Tao a place. --- To die well, one must live well. --- Something mysteriously formed, before heaven and earth. silence and the void,
Standing alone, unchanging,
Ever present and in motion.
Perhaps it is the mother of ten thousand things.
I do not know its name.
I call it Tao.
For lack of a better word, I call it great.'

One cannot feel joy unless one can feel despair. We have no capacity for good without an equal capacity for evil.
Po: It is written, 'Shape clay into a vessel, it is the space within that gives it value. Place doors and windows in a house, it is the opening that brings light within. Set spokes within a wheel, it is the emptiness of the hub that makes them useful.' Therefore be the space at the center. Be nothing and you will have everything to give to others.
Po: It is written in the Tao Te Ching:
'Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness.
All can know good as good only because there is evil.
Therefore having and not having arise together.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short contrast each other;
High and low rest upon each other;
Voice and sound harmonize each other;
Front and back follow one another.
Caine: Fear brings anger to a man's tongue. A friend speaks to the heart. --- With plenty to eat and work to do, I am already rich. --- I seek only to become a cup. Empty of myself. Filled with oneness. --- What will happen will happen whether one is afraid or not. --- You think wisdom is a flower for you to pluck. It is a mountain and it must be climbed. --- Master. If I look truly, will I see truly? --- Is it not better to think of what you will find than what you will lose? --- Any task goes lighter without anger. --- You are free to give; you to take. Can you not both serve and be served?
Po: The undiscerning mind is like the root of a tree - it absorbs equally all that it touches - even the poison that would kill it.
C: The only power I have is to see into myself. --- A threat cannot harm unless you accept it. --- There's no need to leave. There is no need to stay.
Po: Be like the mirror.... Allow no evil to pass through you. Reflect it to its source.
C: "'What is the universe?
Kan: It is in your eye and in your heart. As a seed of the peach contains the fragrance of the flower and the substance of the fruit.
Kan: Observe the daisy. Each morning with the warmth of the sun it opens in lovely blossom. Each night it closes. --- Once your anger warmed you and like the flower, you opened to it. That is long past. It is night.
C: The stick is straight but in the water it seems to bend
Po: That is not a puzzle, Grasshopper. It is only something you do not yet know.
Po: Is not the spider also trapped in its own web? Which is truly the prisoner? The fly, which moving freely enters unknown danger? Or the spider, which having spun its web, remains, never knowing the pleasure or the danger of the fly?
Po: Learn first how to live. Learn second how not to kill. Learn third how to live with death. Learn fourth how to die.
Po: To know love be like a running brook which deaf, yet sings its melody for others to hear. Feel the pain of too much tenderness. Wake at dawn with winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. Empty yourself and yet be filled. An old man tells you this is how to know love.
C: You own nothing that you may be owned by nothing
