Wu Cailan: Favor and disgrace

Wu Cailan: Favor and disgrace
Photo: The Bee Taoist.
Favor and disgrace are meaningless --
What's the use of contending?
Drifting clouds do not obstruct the shining moonlight.
Let the ox and the horse be called,
To both I can respond --
But how could I let a speck of dust
Into the city of the mind?

(Wu Cailan)
