>Final Thoughts on Graduate School (Doctrina Suprema Qua Reppereram)

Posted: 14/05/2010 in Chinese Philosophy, graduate school, LMU

>Abandon sageliness and discard knowledge, and the people will benefit a hundredfold.
Abandon humanity and discard righteousness, and the people will return to filial piety and care.
Abandon skill and discard profit, and there will be no thieves or robbers.

These three sayings:
They are are not yet sufficient for forming a pattern,
thus they shall be connected with something.

Manifest plainness, embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness, have less desires,
abandon learning, have no worries.

The Dao De Jeng Chapter 19
