Joy, anger, sorrow, happiness,

find no place in that man’s breast;

for to him all creation is ONE.

And all things

being thus united in ONE,

his body and limbs

are but as dust of the earth,

and life and death,

beginning, and end,

are but as night and day,

and cannot destroy his peace.

How much less

such trifles as gain or loss,

misfortune or good fortune?

Chuang Tzu
