Intruder, I can accept that; I just surfed out and grabbed the first one I could find. This explains why it didn't seem to fit the context.

Thanks for the correction. The translation I have at home (Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English) is dearly treasured, dog-eared, and has multiple pencil annotations as I wrestled with various parts of its contents.

UTOPIA

Let your community be small, with only a few people;
Keep tools in abundance, but do not depend upon them;
Appreciate your life and be content with your home;
Sail boats and ride horses, but don't go too far;
Keep weapons and armour, but do not employ them;
Let everyone read and write,
Eat well and make beautiful things.

Live peacefully and delight in your own society;
Dwell within cock-crow of your neighbours,
But maintain your independence from them.


mouse, the translation you quoted is a nearly deliberate attempt to conceal the core of the Tao.
this is spoken as an observation and not a judgement.

The G got rid of the fog ? Sounds kinda fogged up. I recall the same incident in Goose Bay, Labrador, about twenty-five years ago, waiting to fly into Nain and Makkovik to build airstrips. Wish to goodness I had had the 'Cats to keep me company back then ! Would have cost a lot less, too !

Come on GUEST. I don't wanna turn this into a soap opera, but we're all intrigued. Little Neo or Bagpuss? I know it is a genuine and heartfelt expression of admiration (yes, cynical 'catters, I think it really is!), but you're not risking anything by saying who it is. You may have already sent a personal message by now, so tell me off for being nosey if you want, but I don't get out much and I miss Sunset Beach!

P.S. Maybe Little Neo and Bagpuss could have an honourable duel to win the title 'You know who you are 2000'. Just a suggestion.

Guestguestguest(intruder) suggested we read the 80th chapter of the Tao, but didn't provide us with same. Here it is, for those who wish to see what it's all about.

--------------------------------------------------

Let there be a small country with few people,
Who, even having much machinery, don't use it.
Who take death seriously and don't wander far away.
Even though they have boats and carriages, they never ride in them.
Having armor and weapons, they never go to war.
Let them return to measurement by tying knots in rope.
Sweeten their food, give them nice clothes, a peaceful abode and a relaxed life.
Even though the next country can be seen and its dogs and chickens can be heard,
The people will grow old and die without visiting each others' land.

-----

Not sure what this has to do with the current conversation. Maybe it's a koan.

Oh well I guess I am obviously outvoted here. I didnt mean to get so many peoples backs up, just pointing out that to post something as personal as this on a thread is inviting poor lost souls such as me who have lost all faith in humanity (tongue firmly in cheek)to question why. Why doesnt he/she get in touch with him/her as a personal message instead of inviting all this speculation.

It just seems to be a bit daft on a general thread thats all.

To anyone who felt I was being bitter and twisted I apologise. I can assure you that I can see the compassion in people and am quite willing to beleive its a genuine heartfelt tribute and an expression of feelings.The Mudcat is a broad church and perhaps I was a bit hasty in my condemnation.

Sorry folks.

Anonymous compliments rank right up there in level of maliciousness with random acts of kindness. Oh my, who will be next?! This guest could be ANYbody! HAHAHAHA - sphincter factor 9.7 and rising...er, 'scuse me.

That was definitely Bonnie. I agree - wisdom, and a humility often mistaken for naivete. What a twisted thing to have a thread meant as a compliment turned into this. That's just my opinion, though. Feel free to make it the sort of thread you want it to be.

Hey gang, perhaps I've missed something here, but it seems to me that the guest who began this thread was sincere. Yes, he or she was somewhat nebulous and did post anonymously, but perhaps had good reason to do so. That aside, it was a very positive post. I have no idea who the originator of the thread is, or the person being described, but I'd like to know them both! KT
