everyone
says
the way
is great
but, well,
a little
silly
it's
because
it's
great
that it
seems
silly
if
it
seemed
serious
it
would end up
tiny
I
have
three
treasures:
I
guard them
very
carefully.
the first
is
compassion
the second
is
frugality
the third
not daring
to be first
being
compassionate
I can be
brave
being
frugal
I can be
generous
not being
first,
I can run
the rest
bravery
without
compassion
generosity
without
thrift
leading
without
following
these
lead
to death
compassion
wins
in attack,
holds
your ground--
heaven
defends
you
using your own
compassion
