In a river mist,
if another boat knocks against yours,
you might yell at the other fellow to stay clear.
.

But if you notice then,
that it’s an empty boat,
adrift with nobody aboard,
you stop yelling.
.

When you discover
that all the others are drifting boats,
there’s no one to yell at.
.

And when you find out you are an empty boat,
there’s no one to yell.
.

– Chuang-Tzu
