THE NATURE OF THE PROBLEM
Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting,
experience treacherous, judgement difficult.
– Hippocrates (460-400 B.C.)
When you start on a long journey, trees are trees,
water is water, and mountains are mountains. After
you have gone some distance, trees are no longer
trees, water no longer water, mountains no longer
mountains. but after you have travelled a great
distance, trees are once again trees, water is once
again water, mountains are once again mountains.
– Zen Teaching
