To learn to be without desire
you must desire that.
Better to do as you please:
Floating clouds, and water idly running --
Where's their source?
In all the vastness of the sea and sky,
you'll never find it.
"Mad Words" by Yuan Mei, trans. by J.P. Seaton
Still-life, Décio Rodrigues Villares (1851-1931)
