In Being, I let go.

I do not think that a man will ever fully grasp the concept. In being, we let go. We embrace death yet we value life. And as for all the answers, they are inside you right now. All you need do is look.

I asked. And my answer came, but still I am un-knowing. It is in this unknowing that wise men are wisest, great men are greatest, and all else are foolish.

Do not try to control. Govern as if you are holding a snake. Strong enough to support, but letting the fluid powerful body glide easily through your hands, always flowing.

If asked, say nothing. Teach without showing, show without saying. Believe.

I'm probably butchering both you and Plato completely, but would this go hand-in-hand with Socrates' implication that a wise man admits he knows nothing?

Yoda: "Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try."

Mr. Miyagi: "Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later, [makes squish gesture] get squish just like grape."
