  when
wise
students
hear
of the way
they
practice
it
energetically
when
average
students
hear
of the way
they
waver
between
belief
and disbelief
  when
fools
hear
of the way
they
burst
out
laughing
if
they
didn't
guffaw
it
wouldn't
be
the way
thus
old
folks
say--
the brightest
way
seems
dull
the way
forward
seems
to go back
the level
way
seems
uneven
the highest
way
seems
a valley
the purest
white
seems
dirty
the strongest
virtue
seems
lazy
the pure
and natural
seem
worn
the biggest
checkerboard
the earth
has
no corners
the largest
bowl
takes
longest
to glaze
the greatest
music
has
the softest
notes
the gigantic
image
exists
beyond
any shape
the way
hides
without name
yet only
the way
knows
how
to create
and complete
